If there’s good news for Penn State, it’s that it was able to hold Iowa to just a field goal and keep it a two-score game.
Iowa is looking to snap a six-game losing streak in this series. The Hawkeyes haven’t won at State College since 2009.
Meanwhile, Penn State is trying to avoid its first 0-5 start in school history.
Clifford entered the game in the third quarter after Will Levis was largely unproductive — only 106 yards on 13 completions. He gave Penn State a chance to get back in it with two immediate TD throws.
Unfortunately for Penn State, its margin for error was already slim-to-none after falling behind 31-7.
Iowa has controlled most of this contest with the running game. Mekhi Sargent has 97 yards and two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter.
