Iowa will beat them. I don't see it being that hard, State Penn Sucks, maybe a top 7 team, maybe. IOWA has 4 losses by a total of 12 points total! Iowa could easily be unbeaten right now. The Big Ten is THAT bad!!!
I would take TCU, Utah and Boise State to beat State Penn.

I think a one loss Big XII team AND a one loss SEC team should be ranked higher than an undefeated State Penn squad.

I feel Florida will be one of the teams to play in the National Championship,because they remind me of the Miami Hurricanes of the 80's and the 90's with so much speed and talent all over.Tim Tebow last years Heisman Trophy winner will lead them to victory. Go Gators!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Iowa could NOT easily be undefeated right now! They are 5-4! They were down 24-9 in the fourth quarter to Illinois! They were down 16-6 to Michigan State in the fourth quarter. If they fall behind like that against Penn State, they are not coming back to make it interesting; they are done. They could maybe easily be 7-2; but let's be real about this. Iowa is 5-4, and they are 5-4 for a reason. Breaking it down further; they are 2-3 against the Big Ten. 2-3!

I was just sayin that they barely lost those 3 CG, as far as the Big 10 goes I don't think they are that bad. Trust me I'm no fan of anything from Iowa, but this weekend I'm puttin State Penn on upset alert.

I don't disagree. If Penn State looks past Iowa, Iowa is good enough to beat Penn State. However, if PSU is not looking past Iowa, PSU is going to clobber Iowa. If Iowa beats PSU, it will be because Penn State forgot to show up, not because Iowa beat them at their best. Iowa is a slightly above average team, nothing more. It should be noted that they didn't barely lose to Michigan State. Don't let the score fool you, Iowa never threatened after they came within 3 points in the fourth, not that it matters.

I really think Michigan State is a more dangerous game for PSU, even in Happy Valley.

One thing working in Penn State's favor is that they had a bye week after they beat Ohio State. That gives them time to get their heads straight for the rest of the season. If it weren't for that, I'd give Iowa a chance. As it is now, I think they win out, and a win against Michigan st. jumps them at least to #2 in the BCS.
National championship here we come!
WE ARE PENN STATE!

Just one question. Who can stop the Graham Harrell/Michael Crabtree connection?

My crystal ball says...

I see Tech losing to OK.

Bama' will get absolutely dismantled by Florida in the SEC chamionship game.

BCS:

TX beats a horrid Lousville team in their bowl game

OK gets revenge on Boise State

USC dominates Ohio State for the second time this season

The winner of Bama and Maryland is unknown since no one cares

Florida destroys Penn State in the NC Game.
