If the first half of this Penn State-Iowa game hasn’t been enough of a roller coaster ride for the Nittany Lions, let’s add another wrinkle to the story. Quarterback Sean Clifford was seen heading to the Penn State locker room midway through the first half of the game, although it is unknown just what may have caused Clifford to head to the medical tent and then the locker room in the middle of the second quarter.

Clifford was taken hard to the ground on the final play of Penn State’s drive that ended in a field goal.

With Clifford unavailable, Ta’Quan Roberson entered the game to lead the Penn State offense. Roberson fumbled the first snap but recovered, and then was nearly intercepted on his second snap.

Things just got a bit tighter in Iowa City as Iowa has cut into the deficit with Penn State leading 17-10.
