Bill Belton, Quinn EvansEvan Habeeb/US PRESSWIREBill Belton started slow but is emerging as a threat for Penn State.
Matt McGloin is one of the best pocket-passers in the Big Ten, Michael Mauti is an incredible linebacker, yadda yadda yadda -- we already know all that.

But Penn State's win against Iowa showed a few other things, elements that weren't so evident just two days ago. NittanyNation takes a closer look at the five things learned from the 38-14 victory over the Hawkeyes:

1. The NASCAR no-huddle offense will become an even bigger part of this team's identity. Bill O'Brien implemented this fast-paced offense in the spring, so McGloin & Co. have understandably caught onto this little by little. But, midway through the season, this offense seems to have a firm grasp of the pace, communication and quick reads necessary to execute. O'Brien called for the no-huddle early and often against the Hawkeyes, and cornerback Stephon Morris told reporters this is just the beginning: "That wasn't NASCAR. Our NASCAR, it's up-tempo. It's really fast. It's faster than what y'all have seen."
