STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (CBS) – The Nittany Lions’ defense continued its outstanding play last week, leading Penn State to a 13-3 win over longtime nemesis Iowa.

Penn State held the Hawkeyes to 35 points below their average coming in, and 253 yards for the game.

Next up for Penn State: those Purdue Boilermakers, who come to Beaver Stadium for a 12 noon kickoff on Saturday.

The Nittany Lions are 5-1, and now 2-0 in the Big Ten.  They have allowed just 63 points in their six games so far — 27 of those points coming in their one loss to Alabama.

Purdue is 3-2 this season, and they won their Big Ten opener last week, beating up on Minnesota, 45-17.

These two teams have not met since 2008, and Penn State leads the alltime series 10-3-1.

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Mark Brennan, editor of FightOnState.com, about the match-up and how good this Nittany Lions defense really is.
