No. 18 Iowa (6-1, 3-1) carries a three-game win streak to Happy Valley this Saturday, where it is a 5.5-point underdog against No. 16 Penn State (5-2, 2-2).

Here are predictions, pregame links and TV, radio and streaming details for the game.

Predictions

Marc Morehouse — This game would be so much easier to pick if it were Sean Penn State. Iowa 23, Penn State 20

Mike Hlas — This is my 10th trip to Penn State for a football game. On the last one, I remember severe turbulence, a mountain lion and a lot of people wearing white. No, wait. That was the seance I attended Wednesday night. Iowa 24, Penn State 21

Jeff Johnson — Forget taking the points, take the moneyline. Iowa 28, Penn State 21

Beth Malicki — Helping a seventh-grader write a formal essay without using the phrase “a lot” or the word “stuff” is proving the most difficult part of being 42. Iowa 27, Penn State 24

Ben Visser — Iowa is rolling and Penn State has struggled in recent weeks. Iowa 28, Penn State 24

Todd Brommelkamp — The color commentators for these teams’ radio broadcasts are Ed Podolak and Jack Ham. Think those guys have some stories to tell when their partners need some filler? Iowa 28, Penn State 24
