As theories on why Penn State football has dramatically declined flutter around like poorly thrown passes, the Nittany Lions will attempt to find something positive on which to build when they play Iowa today in a Big Ten Conference game at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. It will be a game between teams seemingly headed in opposite directions. The Nittany Lions (0-2 overall, 0-1 league) failed to kick up a fuss in their 33-7 drubbing at the hands of top-ranked Miami and their 18-6 loss to Wisconsin, which left them with 12 defeats in their last 18 games and many of their followers howling a bit louder at the door of coach Joe Paterno.

Iowa coach Tom Davis is now 9-0 in first round NCAA Tournament games. His team did it the hard way last night. Russ Millard made two free throws with three seconds remaining and the third-seeded Hawkeyes overcame a 17-point deficit in the second half to beat 11th-seeded George Washington, 81-79, in the West Regional. "It doesn't get any better than that. It has to go down as one of our greatest comebacks ever," said Davis, now 7-0 at Iowa in first-round play after going 2-0 at Boston College.

Jeff Peterson led four Iowa players in double figures with 17 points and the host Hawkeyes pounded rival Iowa State, 73-57, last night. Jermain Davis added 16 points for the Hawkeyes (9-2), who opened the second half on a 25-4 run to blow open what had been a tight game. Iowa, which led by two at the break, got a pair of threes from Peterson that helped put them ahead 48-34 with 14:55 left. Matt Gatens pushed Iowa's lead to 16 by cutting through the lane for a layup and hitting a pair of free throws, and Peterson followed Devan Bawinkel's 3 with a layup to make it 59-36 with 10:45 to go. Diante Garrett had 16 points to lead Iowa State (6-3)

If Penn State were searching for its long-lost twin, it would have to look no farther than today's opponent, Iowa. Led by Joe Paterno clone Kirk Ferentz, the Hawkeyes are tough on defense, suspect on offense, and in serious danger of losing their grip on a season that started so full of promise. After losing three in a row, Iowa (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) arrives in State College for today's 3:30 p.m. game with perhaps its bowl hopes hinging on the outcome. If that sounds familiar, it's because Penn State (3-2, 0-2)

Seventh-ranked Ohio State handed top-ranked Iowa its first loss of the season last night, when Lisa Cline hit two foul shots with 6 seconds left to secure a 58-54 victory in the Big 10. Iowa's point total was its lowest of the season, and the Hawkeyes fell to 22-1 overall and 12-1 in the conference. The Buckeyes increased their overall record to 20-4 and drew to within a half-game of Iowa in the league at 12-2. The loss, which could bump Iowa from the top position in the women's poll next week, snapped the Hawkeyes' 32-game regular-season winning streak.

Iowa was hoping just to become a competitive women's basketball program in the Big 10 when Vivian Stringer was hired away from Cheyney to coach the Hawkeyes in 1983. Those expectations have been more than exceeded. Iowa (9-0) was named the No. 1 team in the nation in the weekly poll, announced yesterday, for the first time in the Hawkeyes' history. They received 53 first-place votes and 1,247 points from a nationwide panel of 63 coaches. Stringer's team bolted from fifth to first after beating three top 10 teams in the Orange Bowl Classic last week, including No. 2 Auburn and previously No. 1 Texas.

When football teams start talking about starting a second season in late October, it usually means the first one didn't go so well. So it is with Penn State, which will perform before a homecoming-day crowd today against No. 25 Iowa in a Big Ten Conference game at Beaver Stadium. The Nittany Lions (2-4, 0-3) return to play after a much-needed bye week. It was much-needed because when last seen they were emotionally spent after a frustrating 20-13 loss to then-No. 9 Purdue two weeks ago. "It was good to have an off-week after Purdue because it was a tough, hard loss and we needed a break," junior strong safety Calvin Lowry said.

From the time Penn State's players gathered on the visitors' sideline before last year's game at Iowa until the final gun sounded, the Nittany Lions felt their ears ringing from constant heckling by the home crowd. The hecklers had plenty to taunt them about. The Hawkeyes' 24-3 victory improved their record against the Nittany Lions to 8-1 in their last nine meetings. "They were saying things like, 'Raise your hand if you ever beat Iowa,' " sophomore middle linebacker Glenn Carson recalled Tuesday.

Bob Wenzel figured an NBA scouting report wasn't necessary to clue him in on how to defense Iowa guard B.J. Armstrong. All the Rutgers coach thought he needed was a Hawkeyes stat sheet. Those statistics revealed that Armstrong was a 36-percent shooter from behind the three-point line, something Wenzel thought would go nicely with the tightly packed 2-3 zone he planned to play. "When he made his first couple, we told the kids to hold tight, because eventually he was going to start missing," said Wenzel.

After jumping five places in the Associated Press top 10 without playing a game, Iowa's basketball team almost fell on its face last night. The undefeated Hawkeyes (No. 16 AP, No. 15 UPI) had to rally from an 11- point deficit against scrappy Drexel, finally putting the game away in the closing minutes for a 59-50 victory. "We might be 7-0," Iowa coach Tom Davis said, "but as you can see, we've got a lot of work to do. I can't give Drexel too much credit. They earned the admiration of our whole ball club the way they outhustled us. They just played extremely well.

THE GOP heavy machinery is merging onto the road to the White House while New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie seems to be swerving in and out of controversies. Christie recently bobbled and backtracked on vaccine comments; there have been numerous reports of his lavish expenses; he roots for a football team in Texas and wouldn't answer questions after watching soccer in London, all while still lugging the "Bridgegate" scandal around. A columnist for the Newark Star-Ledger called for Christie to give up his presidential dream and head back home to focus on Jersey's problems.

Kentucky coach John Calipari and Kentucky experienced an entirely different kind of "one-and-done" in Tuesday's opening round of the NIT. A year after cutting down the nets in New Orleans, the defending national champions were cut down in Calipari's hometown of Moon, Pa., by Robert Morris, who let a 13-point second-half lead disappear before pulling out a thrilling 59-57 victory. Robert Morris (24-10) led almost the entire way, never blinking in a rare visit from one of college basketball's Goliaths.

MICHIGAN'S TREY Burke rushed into the frontcourt, trying to take advantage of a 2-on-1 break. At the last moment, he softly lobbed the ball toward the rim, where Glenn Robinson III slammed it through the hoop. That was the beginning of Michigan's latest offensive clinic, a highlight reel of dunks, three-pointers, and smart passing that overwhelmed visiting Iowa in a 95-67 rout Sunday. Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists for the second-ranked Wolverines. Robinson had 20 points and 10 rebounds.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - The Iowa fans that stayed until the final minutes would not let up. They stood, some 10 feet behind the Nittany Lion sideline, and continued to heckle. "Enjoy your bowl game!" one man shouted. "Send me a postcard from Florida," a woman yelled, before she laughed at her own joke. But when it was all over, it was the Penn State players who ran into the locker room, smiling. The Hawkeyes and their fans were left wondering what happened. Matt McGloin passed for two touchdowns, and Bill Belton ran for three more as Penn State (5-2, 3-0 Big Ten)

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State might be on a four-game winning streak, but Iowa has the momentum. That's coach Bill O'Brien's take, anyway. With his Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) coming off a bye week and Iowa (4-2, 2-0) coming off a double-overtime, 19-16, road win at Michigan State, it's a fair claim to make. "Our team needs to understand that, that it's one thing to have a bye week, but it's a whole other thing to be playing a team like Iowa," O'Brien said. Perhaps as a result of that momentum, Penn State is the three-point underdog to the Hawkeyes going into Saturday's 8 p.m. showdown in Kinnick Stadium.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Less than a month ago, Iowa was coming off a startling loss to Central Michigan. The Hawkeyes didn't look like a championship team in the Mid-American Conference, much less the Big Ten. Then the conference season started, and the turnaround was immediate. After Saturday's victory at Michigan State, Iowa is tied with Michigan atop the Legends Division heading into Saturday's big home game against Penn State (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten). "It's awesome, obviously. It's cool being at the top," tight end Jake Duzey said.

DES MOINES, Iowa — It took only two seasons for Fran McCaffery to take the downtrodden Iowa program and make it a respectable one. On Tuesday, the university showed it believes McCaffery can turn the Hawkeyes into the Big Ten contenders they used to be. Iowa athletic director Gary Barta announced that the Philadelphia native has signed a new, 7-year deal with a raise. McCaffery will be paid at least $1.66 million a year with a base salary of $1.3 million starting next season.

Tom Reed was recently spared a six-hour round-trip drive to North Jersey. He'd been headed there to see a bird. And not just any bird, but a calliope hummingbird, which normally doesn't come anywhere near here. But someone claimed to have spotted one near I-80. Shortly after leaving his home in Cape May County, however, Reed got a call. False alarm. It was a common rufous hummingbird. He was glad he didn't have to buck rush hour traffic around Newark. But, boy, he needed that bird.
