The Hawkeyes are rolling heading into week five’s matchup with the Penn State Nittany Lions, fresh off a pair of big time wins over Michigan State and Minnesota. Penn State, on the other hand, is off to an 0-4 start for just the second time in program history.

Now, for the second straight week, the Hawkeyes are opening up as a pick’em in their matchup against Penn State. According to Circa Sports, Iowa and Penn State are even money with an over/under set at 45.5 points.

That’s where things opened, at least. That has since moved to Iowa -2.5 at most books. The over/under has also risen a bit to 48.5 total points.

Saturday’s game is set for a 2:30pm CT kickoff from State College and will be broadcast on BTN. This week’s announcers are set to be Joe Beninati, Matt Millen and Rick Pizzo.

The weather in State College appears to be on track for another unbelievably beautiful day. Temps are expected to again be in the low-60s (in late November!) with nothing but sunshine and winds of just 5mph.
