IOWA CITY - A game that Penn State dominated statistically came down to the final play.  Trace McSorley hit Juwan Johnson for a 7 yard TD as time expired to let the Nittany Lions escape Iowa City with a 21-19 win.

The Iowa offense struggled all game but finally broke loose in the 4th Q.  Nate Stanley hit Akrum Wadley for a 70 yard TD to make it 15-13 PSU, then with just 1:42 left Wadley got free again and scored from 35 yards out to give the Hawks a 19-15 lead.

Penn State doubled up Iowa in total offense 579 to 273, but couldn't find the endzone or hit any big plays.  Saquon Barkley, a Heisman favorite, had over 300 yards of offense by himself.  Wadley led Iowa with 155 total yards and 2 TD's.

The Hawkeyes fall to 3-1 overall, 0-1 in the Big 10.  Next week they travel to East Lansing to take on Michigan State.
