Penn State Ranked 24th in ESPN Power Rankings

Every week, 20 of ESPN’s college football analysts, columnists, and reporters vote for which teams they believe belong in the Top 25.

ESPN released its Week 9 Power Rankings yesterday, and Penn State finally jumped in as the 24th ranked team. Who would’ve thought — of all organizations — ESPN being the only one to put Penn State in its national rankings?

After dominating Iowa on the road last weekend in a 38-14 victory, the Nittany Lions are on a five game winning streak. It’s not hard to make the case that Penn State is only a few plays and a placekicker away from being undefeated.

If it were not for the NCAA and Big Ten sanctions against both Penn State and Ohio State, this weekend’s game would have likely decided which team would head to Indianapolis for the conference championship on behalf of the Big Ten Leaders Division. A win this weekend would certainly propel the Nittany Lions into every national poll that they are eligible to be included in.

Staying Motivated in the 17th Hour

It’s the 17th hour in the BJC, and from the looks of it, it’s filled with energy and enthusiasm in the stands and on the floor. That being said, I know there are parts of the BJC that we can’t see from inside of THON, and I know there are some committee members that have shifts in places where there isn’t much going on, and times where standing just doesn’t sound so appealing anymore.
