The Penn State Nittany Lions look to snap a three-game losing skid on Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. when they visit the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Penn State has lost three straight and six out of seven, limping to a 2-8 Big Ten Conference record. The Nittany Lions started a stretch of meeting four consecutive ranked opponents by outlasting Illinois on Jan. 19, but followed that with losses to Indiana, Ohio St. and Wisconsin. The latter loss came Tuesday night at home, when Tim Frazier's 21 points and seven assists were not enough to overcome Wisconsin's suffocating defense.

Iowa has experienced its own struggles, dropping five of their last seven. The Hawkeyes beat Minnesota 63-59 in their most recent outing on Wednesday night. Iowa faced a 10-point second-half deficit, but prevailed thanks to 18 points from Matt Gatens and a defense that held Minnesota to 39.2 percent shooting.
