IOWA CITY, Iowa - At Kinnick Stadium, the visitors' locker room is painted pink - a psychological tactic intended to calm Iowa's opponent. But nothing is soothing about this 70,000-seat venue, where the Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) will face Iowa (4-2, 2-0) Saturday at 8 p.m. The forecast calls for a Midwestern chill. Fans clad in black and yellow will heckle, cheer, and do everything they can to cool down Bill O'Brien's red-hot Lions. Penn State is riding a four-game winning streak.

Bill O'Brien doesn't care about midseason praise. He doesn't buy into hoopla or hype. And the first-year Penn State coach definitely doesn't care about what is said on Twitter. So on Tuesday when O'Brien was asked about a Twitter post from senior cornerback Stephon Morris about facing Iowa - "We hate them, they hate us," Morris tweeted - O'Brien rolled his eyes and laughed. "Tweet this, spacebook that, whatever," O'Brien said. "We've got to go play the game. " Indeed, O'Brien is maintaining his "one game at a time" approach as the Nittany Lions (4-2, 2-0 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.

They come from Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and the little farm towns all over the state. They even come from Madison County, the home of those now- famous bridges. Half a dozen Saturdays each autumn, Iowa's football fans converge on this pretty, little college town, hard by the banks of the Iowa River. They come, dressed in black and gold, to scream for their beloved University of Iowa Hawkeyes. They come to Kinnick Stadium, which looks for all the world like a mammoth outdoor version of the Palestra.

With a determined stiff-arm move, Penn State coach Joe Paterno refused to be tackled by a questioner who wanted him to comment on the difficult opponents that await his second-ranked Nittany Lions down the road - five of whom are currently ranked among the top 25 teams in the country. "We're playing Iowa, and that's the only one I'm worrying about," he replied curtly, referring to today's Big Ten Conference game at Kinnick Stadium between Penn State (5-0, 1-0) and the struggling Hawkeyes (1-3, 0-1)

It doesn't seem to matter whether Penn State plays Iowa in the freezing cold or the pouring rain, or whether the Nittany Lions are unbeaten and in the hunt for a berth in the BCS championship game, or whether they play in front of a crazed "Whitehouse" crowd at Beaver Stadium. The Hawkeyes, it seems, always get the better of them. It's almost become a habit. Iowa, which hosts 22d-ranked Penn State on Saturday night, has defeated its guest in seven of their last eight meetings.

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)

The injury report for No. 5 Penn State and Iowa has become just as important as the stat sheet heading into the Big Ten opener for both squads tonight at State College. The Hawkeyes will be without left tackle Bryan Bulaga (undisclosed illness), Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz confirmed yesterday. He played in the opening win over Northern Iowa, but did not play in wins over Iowa State and Arizona. His absence could spell trouble against one of the Big Ten's best defensive lines. Tackle Jared Odrick, who has two sacks, often needs double-teaming to be contained up the middle, leaving potential pass-rush lanes vulnerable elsewhere along the line.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Ricky Stanzi had been accustomed to playing the role of the younger, more inexperienced quarterback when Iowa faced off against Penn State, while leading the Hawkeyes to surprising victories the last two years over Daryll Clark and the Nittany Lions. It's different for Stanzi this season. He's the old hand, a fifth-year senior going against Penn State freshman Rob Bolden, a promising talent about 4½ years younger, ready to take the field Saturday night in front of a raucous crowd of more than 70,000 inside Kinnick Stadium.

SO HOW MUCH of an irritant have those pesky Iowa Hawkeyes been to a Penn State football program that hasn't been able to shake its black-and-gold blues in recent seasons? Maybe you can't put a price tag on damaged pride and diminished national prestige, but you can in terms of revenue flowing into the university coffers. Consider the 2009 game in Beaver Stadium, for instance. Although Penn State and Iowa finished the regular season with 10-2 records, the Orange Bowl selection committee opted to invite the Hawkeyes over the Nittany Lions to face Atlantic Coast Conference champion Georgia Tech.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Through the first month of Penn State's season, coach Joe Paterno repeatedly said of his team, "We've got a long way to go. " Now that they are in the second month of the season, and with Big Ten opponents such as Iowa coming at them with malice, the Nittany Lions showed Saturday night that they still have a long way to go - maybe even longer than Paterno thought. With a nonexistent running game and a freshman quarterback running for his life against a relentless pass rush, the 22d-ranked Lions did almost nothing on offense and dropped their conference opener, 24-3, to the 17th-ranked Hawkeyes in front of a black-and-gold-streaked crowd at Kinnick Stadium.
