Here is the AP summary of the game:
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) ̵
On the fourth and -10 with 7 seconds left, Penn State swarmed pass-rush Nate Stanley, who turned back to offensive attack Tristan Wirfs. The 300-pounder rumbled 15 yards before being pulled down without wasting any time.
It was a fitting end to a strange game with little lingering insult. Iowa scored on two collateral and a touchdown pass from Punter Colten Rasteter to defensive tackle Sam Brincks on a fake field goal in the first half. Penn State played three series in the second quarter without starting quarterback Trace McSorley.

Week 9 Tips and Predictions
WHAT IS IN STAKE?
Iowa tries to avenge a series of heavy defeats in the series and keep up with Big Ten West races. The Hawkeyes lost at home last season's game and were ashamed of 45-14 when they last played at Beaver Stadium. Penn State still has an outside chance to win the Big Ten East and could go back into a big bowl.
Penn State's Secondary School Vs. Iowa TE's TJ Hockenson and Noah Fant. Both 6-foot-5, 250-pound Hawkeyes lead their team in a receiving category and should be a challenge for a defense that has allowed 895 passing yards and six touchdowns in the past three games. The hard-hitting S Garrett Taylor will miss the first half for a carry-over penalty, so the Hawkeyes could try to use this match early.
Iowa: QB Nate Stanley will make his first start at Beaver Stadium, where Penn State's talented Penn State passers-by tend to feed on the noise. This has the potential to be an overwhelming amount as Penn State's last home win came on September 15th.
Penn State: QB Trace McSorley has been asked to make a ton lately. He has an average of 18 transfers per game over the last four, eight more than his career average up to this point. Iowa's well-rounded defensive line is one of the top units in the country, so offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne may need to be more creative to keep off McSorley's onslaught.
