Penn State-Iowa fourth quarter update

IOWA CITY, Iowa --

Penn State-Iowa fourth quarter update

IOWA CITY, Iowa --

1. We're getting to a sweaty-palms finish here. Iowa cut into Penn State's lead when Shonn Green scored a touchdown from six yards out. The Lions now lead, 23-21, with 9:20 to go. This is gut-check time for this Penn State team. Do and your national title hopes are still a live. Don't and they're dead.

2. I'm looking at the south end zone here and I can't believe that a bunch of Iowa students have left before this game is over. Very odd. OK, it's time for me to get back to my newspaper work. I'll be back after the game.
