Lions' atypical offense might be 'boring,' but it's part of beautiful results

ALTOONA, Pa. -- Let's play a game of guess the score.

It's Penn State vs. Iowa. The Nittany Lions' starting quarterback has just 166 yards passing. The team's presumed best running back has 49 yards rushing. The other guy, who actually just might be the better running back, has 72 yards rushing. The leading wideout has 66 yards receiving, and no other receiver has more than 17 yards.

Now, guess the score, based on those pedestrian offensive numbers.

Whatcha got? Maybe something like Penn State 17, Iowa 13?

There's no way you'd think the Lions would have won that game, 31-0.
