Big Ten play starts in earnest today for the Hawkeyes and Nittany Lions.

NCAA Basketball: Iowa at Penn State
Can Luka Garza lift the Hawkeyes over Penn State?
Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY Sports

The Hawkeyes are off to a tremendous start after going 9-2 in the non-conference slate. They currently sit in 5th place in the Big Ten with a 1-1 record in the conference. Today they start their trek through the remaining 18 conference games with a trip to the legendary Palestra in Philadelphia to take on the #21 Penn State Nittany Lions.

Iowa will need a big game from center Luka Garza with Penn State big man Mike Watkins averaging nearly a double-double. The Hawkeyes’ star should be up to the challenge, but who else will step up to lift Iowa in what is essentially a road game?

We’re about to find out as #23 Iowa takes on #21 Penn State.

You know the drill by now. Play nice in the comments. Report the spam. Let’s crown a fresh prince Philly!
