At 8 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2Go, we’re airing Iowa’s memorable 24-23 victory over No. 3 Penn State in the 2008 Big Ten regular season.

This game will be remembered as the one that ruined the Nittany Lions’ perfect season and any chance they had at making the BCS National Championship Game.

Daniel Murray’s 31-yard field goal with one second remaining gave Iowa the victory, its first against a top five team since 1990.

Shonn Greene rushed for 117 yards and two touchdowns, while the Hawkeyes’ defense held Penn State quarterback Daryll Clark to just 9-of-23 passing for 86 yards and an interception.

Here is a breakdown of the game

Top moment: Daniel Murray kicked a game-winning 31-yard field goal with one second left on the clock.

Top stat line: Iowa’s defense held Daryll Clark to just 9-of-23 passing for 86 yards. It was the only game in the 2008 season in which Clark completed fewer than 10 passes and threw fewer than 120 yards.
