Lions and Tigers and Hawkeyes

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- You may not want to hear it, but Iowa poises quite the test for your Penn State Nittany Lions today. The Hawkeyes are strong defensively, have a power running back and should have the benefit of playing a home game in some nasty weather. I'm not sure if the Lions are peeking past Iowa, but this game has "trap" written all over it. Here's a closer look at today's game in this morning's story. I'll be back in a bit with my prediction.
