College Football Week 6 Saturday: Are we in for another Iowa-Penn State ‘classic’?

The top-five matchup promises to be one of the biggest games of the early port of the season.

Over the last few decades, the rivalry between the Iowa Hawkeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions has generated some fascinating games. However, not all of them have been pretty to an outside observer.

Take the 2004 season, for example. That year, Iowa — behind a 14-of-31 passing day from quarterback Drew Tate — earned a 6-4 victory over Joe Paterno’s Penn State team. The two teams combined for seven turnovers and just 315 yards of total offense in one of the most notorious college football games in recent memory.

Not all of the games between these two Big Ten schools have been so rough to watch, but there have been plenty of ugly ones over the years. This year’s matchup, which takes place this Saturday afternoon, looks to be a good one, however, as it will be the first time these programs meet while both being ranked in the top five.

While that game dominates the schedule today, there are also big conference games and rivalries being renewed across the college football landscape. Early on, catch the Red River Rivalry between Oklahoma and Texas, then tune in later for Auburn-Georgia in the SEC. Here’s your full Saturday schedule and enjoy all of the games!
