Single Game Parking Sales to end for Wisconsin Game
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.– Penn State has announced that it will not sell any additional single game parking permits in advance of the Nov. 10 Wisconsin football game in Beaver Stadium. The contest will kick at noon or 3:30/4:00 p.m., with the kick time to be announced by Sunday.
The wet conditions that have persisted this fall and the impact of the Oct. 27 contest with Iowa have some grass lots in poor condition, with additional rain in the forecast during the next week. Penn State officials are monitoring the forecast and the prognosis for improving the conditions of the lots before making a final decision on possible lot closures for the Wisconsin game.

No. 17/16 Penn State Holds Off No. 18 Iowa
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – A gutsy effort by senior quarterback Trace McSorley, big stops on defense and three 40-plus yard field goals by true freshman kicker and Iowa native Jake Pinegar led No. 17/16 Penn State past No. 18 Iowa, 30-24, in Big Ten football action Saturday in Beaver Stadium.
Iowa (6-2, 3-2) threatened late, but the Penn State defense (6-2, 3-2 Big Ten) came up with two big stops in the final minutes to preserve Penn State’s lead. Senior safety Nick Scott halted a drive at the Nittany Lion 2-yard line with his second interception in as many weeks with 3:18 remaining, and then after Iowa regained the ball at its own 23 with 1:23 remaining and managed one first down, but time ran out after three-straight incomplete passes brought up fourth down. On the fourth down play, Iowa’s Nate Stanley was forced to pitch in desperation to offensive lineman Tristan Wirfs. Wirfs gained 15 yards but was pulled down by Penn State defenders Micah Parsons and John Reid to end the game.
