Trace McSorley returns from knee injury, sprints for TD

McSorley underthrew the middle and was intercepted in the fourth quarter by Geno Scott, who returned 24 yards for a touchdown that pulled the Hawkeyes within 27-24 with 10 minutes to play.

In fact, the defense was superb in the contest as they faced arguably the top rushing duo in the Big Ten in Miles Sanders and Trace McSorley, and they kept the Hawks in the game by timely turnovers and stop.

Maybe Iowa has more tricks in the bag.

The 6-foot, 202-pound McSorley has started 35 straight games for Penn State since the start of the 2016 season. He entered the game having missed on all three of his field goal attempts of over 40 yards.

Best return: Iowa's Ihmir Smith-Marsette busted a 49-yard kickoff return after the Lions tied the game at 14 in the second quarter. Penn State won 30-24. Just before taking the hit, Stanley pitched to Tristan Wirfs, who gained 15 yards before being tackled. Yes, there is still a tremendous amount of work still to be done, but as the team is starting to be confronted by the dreaded injury bug, new players are getting chances to show what they can do to help Penn State this season. Stanley had the world wondering why he wasn't benched - myself included - with a horrific day, then almost stole the game with a brilliant fourth-quarter drive. But Stanley's next throw was a quick pass toward star tight end Noah Fant, who was not looking.

"I guess that's something that if there's any sort of secret out there, I guess that would be it - just investing in your body outside of practice and outside of everything that you're doing on the field".

India jumps 23 places to secure 77th rank
With streamlining of processes, the country has made it faster and less expensive to obtain a construction permit. On the other hand, it is still ranked low for enforcing contracts and paying taxes (90th in both categories).

"This one's going to hurt", Ferentz said.

It was a valiant effort that capped a cold, sloppy, back-and-forth afternoon, out of which Penn State emerged with a 30-24 win in Happy Valley that prevented a potential mini-spiral in State College and brought some clarity to the Big Ten West picture.

It was a fitting end to an odd game with little sustained offense. They last lost three straight at home in 2015.

POLL IMPLICATIONS - Penn State will move up a few spots.

Iowa had a 1st-and-goal from the Penn State 3 with 3:25 remaining, trailing 30-24 in the game. Blake Gillikin dropped his first snap, leading to an Iowa safety. All the way out?

PASSING-Iowa, Rastetter 1-1-0-10, Stanley 18-49-2-205.
