Penn State's Clark needs to turn it around

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- A sobering statistic for Penn State at halftime: since completing a 79-yard touchdown pass to Chaz Powell on the Nittany Lions' first play from scrimmage, quarterback Daryll Clark is 5-for-11 passing for 25 yards.

Clark will need a stronger second half against a ferocious Iowa defense determined to make his life miserable for the second straight year. In other words, Penn State's offensive line must give him a chance to make plays.
