The Nittany Lions took a 2-0 lead on the first possession — Penn State's first lead in a Big Ten game this season — when the snap went over Iowa punter David Bradley's head and into the end zone. Bradley kicked the ball out the back of the end zone. Iowa gave Penn State its final two points, conceding a safety instead of punting from its own end zone late in the fourth quarter. The Hawkeyes were also called for holding in the end zone on the play that made it 6-4.
