So far, the only thing stopping the Iowa offense is the Iowa offense. After a penalty caused the first drive to stall out, Penn State went three-and-out. That was followed by a Ricky Stanzi interception — his second of the year — and another Nittany Lion three-and-out.
But Stanzi made up for the pick on the next drive, capping off a 51-yard drive with a 9-yard pass to Derrell Johnson-Koulianos for a TD. Iowa leads 10-0 after the first quarter.
