The Iowa Hawkeyes are still hanging on by the slimmest of margins to some hope for their first outright Big Ten regular season championship in a generation. That’s thanks to a three-game winning streak that includes a pair of wins over top-25 teams and their first wins at both Wisconsin and Michigan State in the same season since 1988.
Now the Hawkeyes look to keep those hopes alive by extending the streak to four straight games. They’ll face off with a struggling Penn State team that has played better than their end results in recent weeks. They’ve lost three in a row, but two of those came by a combined three points and the other was to #4 Ohio State where the Nittany Lions led by as many as seven in the second half.
