Saturday night the Nittany Lions went into Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City and battled one of the toughest environments in all of college football - Kinnick Stadium at night. When the dust settled, Penn State walked away with a 17-12 victory over no. 19 Iowa to improve to 6-0 on the season.

This was a great win for Penn State. There were a lot of fan whining online about the officiating crew, headed by John O’Neill.

Due to O’Neill and his crew, this Twitter recap will be different than most. Instead of focusing on the game’s high and low points, this will be a John O’Neill bash session. Let’s get ready to unload multiple built up years of frustration on the most corrupt referee in college football!

From the second O’Neill was announced as ref, Penn State fans were pissed.

As the game progressed, the anger of Penn State fans grew. Penn State was called for multiple phantom penalties, at one point they had three consecutive plays that ended in a touchdown called back, Penn State was called for 8 penalties while Iowas was flagged just once... yeah, it was bad.

Penn State is now 6-0. The White Out and College GameDay are looming. Michigan.... you’re next!
