Anyone in the Iowa football program will tell you that the most important game of the season is the next one up on the schedule.

It just so happens this one features a battle between top-10 teams.

No. 3 Iowa football (5-0, 2-0 in the Big Ten) hosts No. 4 Penn State (5-0, 2-0 in the Big Ten) on Oct. 9 in what is arguably the most highly-anticipated game remaining on the Hawkeye schedule. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. CT, and the game will be broadcasted on FOX. 

Iowa enters the game following a 51-14 beatdown win over Maryland on Oct. 1. The defense forced seven turnovers and quarterback Spencer Petras put together one of his best outings in a Hawkeye uniform. The junior completed 21 of his 30 passes for 259 yards and three touchdowns and also ran for a pair of scores, too.

Penn State travels to Iowa City fresh off a 24-0 win over Indiana on Oct. 2. Quarterback Sean Clifford threw for 178 yards and three touchdowns while also running for 58 yards. As a team, Penn State ran for 209 yards. The Nittany Lion defense held Indiana to 264 yards of total offense.
