Penn State Receives 18 Votes in AP Poll

Penn State’s 38-14 blowout victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes last night at Kinnick Stadium earned the Nittany Lions some additional votes in the latest AP Top 25 Poll.

After receiving one vote from Alabama writer Cecil Hurt in the past two polls, the Nittany Lions had 18 votes in today’s release. Despite the slight bump, they do remain unranked as the West Virginia Mountaineers round out the list of 25 with 76 votes.

The undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes, who will visit Beaver Stadium in a highly anticipated matchup this Saturday night, are ranked ninth. The Buckeyes actually fell two spots from last week after nearly suffering an upset loss at home at the hands of the Purdue Boilermakers.

The only other Big Ten team to crack the poll is the Michigan Wolverines who are listed twentieth. Both Penn State and Ohio State are ineligible for the USA Today/Coaches Poll which lists the Wolverines and the Wisconsin Badgers as twentieth and twenty-fifth respectively.

A victory on Saturday night would be Penn State’s first win against a top ten team since defeating the Buckeyes 13-6 in 2008. If that happens, expect them to be ranked when the new poll is released next Sunday.
