Tomorrow is Saturday, and that means it’s time for our game of the week: Penn State vs. Iowa.
The Nittany Lions are headed to Iowa City to square up against the Hawkeyes. There are match-ups between two ranked teams but the reason this game is the game of the week is because it’s a litmus test for Penn State.
It’s Penn State’s first true test of the year. They haven’t played a great team yet, and Iowa will reveal whether or not PSU is worthy of the hype or not.
Their critics won’t have much to talk about if PSU marches into a Big Ten road game against a solid team and proceeds to blow them out. They’ll immediately be considered a national title contender.
Tune in 7:30 EST on ABC to find out if the Nittany Lions can prove they deserve their spot in the playoff.
