  • Sizing up Big Ten football as we (kinda) launch into conference season

With Gesicki proving to be a matchup nightmare every week, look for more teams to try and take away the tight end and make guys like Johnson, DaeSean Hamilton and others beat them. The crowd will be alive at Kinnick Stadium for what should be a physical football game.

This was the first time this Penn State group truly played with a target on its back and, at the end, had to perform with everything on the line.

Michigan State rebounded with its best drive of the night, knifing 75 yards in seven snaps for a touchdown. James Franklin agrees. "That's not who we are, and that's not who he is". His previous career best was 207.

He helped Penn State survive in a place where several Big Ten teams have faltered at night, like MI past year.

"I can't take credit for the performance I had today". Lewerke carried the load for Michigan State, connecting on 31-of-51 passes for 340 yards - many of them junk - with a touchdown and an interception with nine carries for 56 yards and a fumble. One play later, the Hawkeyes scored their only touchdown of the half in taking a 7-5 lead. I want to apologize to (Iowa) coach (Kirk) Ferentz, to (linebacker) Josey Jewell, their quarterback (Nathan Stanley), their entire team. 1-0 Big Ten) avoiding the same fate that met the 2008 team (ranked No. 3) when they were upset by the home-standing Hawkeyes (3-1, 0-1 Big Ten) by a final score of 24-23 on a last-second field goal.

The Lions had first-and-goal at the 2 early in the third quarter but once again failed to find the end zone.

Da'Ron Payne, DT, Alabama - The projected first-round pick helped the Crimson Tide shut out Vanderbilt in Nashville, holding the Commodores to just 78 total yards.

Valuation Of Cowboys Increases By 14 Percent To $4.8 Billion
All but five of the NFL's 32 teams are worth at least $2bn, while the Buffalo Bills are last on that list , valued at $1.6bn. The team rose in value by 16 percent thanks to the opening of Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the sponsorship dollars committed.


Barkley is arguably the most dynamic back in the country, with 307 yards rushing (8.1 yards per attempt) and 11 catches for 241 yards.

This felt like that game, but one could argue that it shouldn't have.

Until the final 96 seconds, when McSorley, Barkley and Johnson saved the day with a memorable scoring drive.

PSU was caught in a blitz on both plays, and what had been an incredible defensive night up to that point turned into a "what the heck just happened" kind of evening. His 211 rushing yards are tied for 15th in Penn State history, along with Lydell Mitchell (1971), Curtis Enis (1997) and Eric McCoo (1999). In the second set alone, Holman and Albrecht combined for 12 kills and teamed up for two blocks. Then the Nittany Lions have a bye ahead of a two-week stretch that'll define their season, playing MI at home and Ohio State on the road to end October.

The No. 4 Nittany Lions traveled to Kinnick Stadium on Saturday and barely escaped with a win. He finished with three catches for 105 yards in the Buckeyes' 54-21 win over UNLV. Penn State converted on just 6-of-18 third-down plays.

Barkley's quick first-step punished the Hawkeyes on the edge.

Barkley ranks fifth in the Big Ten in both rushing yards (102.3 per game) and receiving yards (80.3), making him the conference's most unsafe player with the ball. Simone Lee led the Nittany Lions with 22 kills, while Haleigh Washington and Ali Frantti chipped in 12 and 10 kills respectively. Penn State lost its only contest at the Horseshoe against the Buckeyes, which came in 2015.
