  Maybe playing Iowa isn’t the nightmare Penn State has always thought. Penn State hasn’t won at Iowa since 1999. Let’s face it, the Nittany Lions haven’t had great success against the Hawkeyes at home either. Under normal circumstances, we would be talking about what a nightmare it is for Penn State to be playing at Kinnick Stadium at night. Make no mistake, it’s not going to be easy. “Well, it is; it’s a very difficult place to play,” said coach Bill O’Brien. “It’s going to be an electric atmosphere. The crowd noise is definitely going to be a factor, so we’ve got to make sure that we deal with that in the right way. We’ve got to practice with crowd noise and make sure that our players do a great job of communicating on offense, defense and special teams. But again, it’s not going to be anything like what it’s like on Saturday night, so hopefully we can just give them a picture of it, and then when they get there Saturday night, they have a better understanding
