IOWA CITY, Iowa – Just like the Iowa football team, we're back with our bold predictions after having a bye week to recover and re-energize.
Our guest picker is Tyler Devine's younger brother, Zach Devine. He is the only one on our three-person panel who thinks the Hawkeyes will extend their road winning streak to 10 games by defeating Penn State on Saturday.
The fact that Penn State is ranked 20th in the Associated Press poll and 23rd in the coaches poll might work to Iowa's advantage, considering Iowa has won the last four meetings when Penn State enters the game ranked.
Penn State has won the last two games in the series, but Iowa holds a 9-7 advantage since Penn State joined the Big Ten in 1993..
Saturday's game at Beaver Stadium in University Park, Pa., will mark the first time that Penn State head coach James Franklin has faced Iowa. Franklin is in his third season at Penn State.
