Indiana State at Penn State - Football Highlights

(AP) Chaz Powell set the tone by returning the game’s opening kickoff 95 yards for a score and Silas Redd led an overwhelming Penn State ground game with two rushing touchdowns in a 41-7 win Saturday over Indiana State. Joe Paterno coached from the press box more than three weeks after suffering shoulder and pelvis injuries from a collision in practice, though the Nittany Lions didn’t miss a beat against the Sycamores – an FCS team. Redd ran for 94 of his 104 yards by the second quarter. Rob Bolden started at quarterback, splitting time with Matt McGloin.

This was not the case in Iowa City, where play between Iowa and Tennessee Tech was suspended due to weather. A thunderstorm moved during the second half  and halted the action with Iowa shutting out their visitors, 34-0. Watch the video now and you can see how a downpour at Kinnick Stadium sent water cascading down the steps and benches, looking just like a mini-waterfall.  Fans and players have left the field and stands and are currently waiting out the storm inside the stadium.
