Penn State football takes on Iowa in the 2023 White Out game this evening in Happy Valley. Even the weather is getting in the spirits for this Big Ten clash, with rain and chilly conditions forecast for the game. But what's going to play out on the field this evening?
Join the Penn State Football Tailgate Show, presented in conjunction with Seven Mountains Media, starting at 4:30 outside the Bryce Jordan Center, across the road from Beaver Stadium. Former Penn State defensive tackle Aeneas Hawkins joins the show to discuss the game and give his insights into the matchup between Penn State and Iowa. Catch the show on the Blue White Illustrated YouTube Channel or locally on 99.5 The Bus in State College.
On today's show, we'll discuss Penn State's offensive plan and how they should attack Iowa and how the defense can counter the Hawkeyes ground attack.
Penn State vs Iowa has deep roots.
As Penn State head coach James Franklin noted earlier, there's a history between his team and Iowa over the years.
"First of all, it's almost like opening on the road in the Big Ten. We played Iowa more than anybody. Maybe you could make the argument part of maybe the best team in the west over our team here at Penn State. You could make that argument."
But despite Kirk Ferentz's long-standing tenure at Iowa, Franklin is quickly climbing the rankings of veteran Big Ten coaches in his tenth season at Penn State. Consistency like this could breed a great game or complacency. Franklin says that evolving is necessary, but not at the cost of your identity.
"I think that really starts with two things, and that's hiring and recruiting, making sure that you're hiring the right people in the building and recruiting the right people into the locker room, and that you're transparent with them on what they're signing up for," Franklin said earlier this week.
"Then saying, Okay, they have to understand how to blend within the culture and align kind of with the identity, but then also allow a Manny Diaz to be Manny Diaz and play to his strengths and allow his strengths and experiences to add value to our overall organization, be able to have Drew [Allar] that we talked about, bring him into our organization. Like we talked about maybe a week or two ago, not put restrictions on Drew that it limits his development and his ability to be a unique player."
Both Diaz and Allar will be central figures in today's show. Join us live and in person or on the Blue White Illustrated YouTube Channel in the live stream!
