On Saturday afternoon, the Penn State Nittany Lions took the field against the Iowa Hawkeyes looking to get back on track in the Big Ten. No. 17 Penn State opened as a 5.5-point favorite heading into the game, but No. 18 Iowa hasn't gone quietly thus far.

After one quarter of play, Iowa leads Penn State by a score of 12-7 after forcing a safety in the opening minutes of the game. The Nittany Lions have a history of starting slowly against the Hawkeyes and that's holding true today.

Early in the second quarter, Penn State got the ball with the hopes of taking a lead.

Star quarterback Trace McSorley dropped back to pass and the attempted to scramble away from pressure, but was hit and went down awkwardly.

McSorley laid on the ground for a few minutes before getting helped off the field by Penn State training staff.

Early indications are McSorley hurt his leg on the play.

If McSorley is out for the rest of the game it would be a huge blow to the Penn State offense. McSorley has led the Penn State offense for the past three seasons and is one of the best in the country.

Junior quarterback Tommy Stevens looks poised to enter the game for the Nittany Lions.
