The latest installment of the College Football Playoff ranking has the Nittany Lions holding their spot at No. 10 after a weekend where every team in the top ten won, including Penn State, which beat Nebraska 56-44.
Penn State remains the third highest ranked Big Ten team behind No. 9 Ohio State and No. 5 Wisconsin. With each passing week, the College Football Playoff pipe dream seems less and less likely, but a New Year’s Six Bowl is still within reach.
The Nittany Lions will finish their regular season slate Saturday at Maryland as they seek their second straight 10-2 regular season.
