Penn State Ranked No. 24 In AP Top 25

The Penn State Nittany Lions are a ranked football program once again.

After upending the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes in thrilling fashion, 24-21, the Associated Press ranked the Nittany Lions No. 24 in its AP Top 25 Poll. This is the first time Penn State has been ranked since checking in at No. 19 just before the final week of the 2011 regular season, 1,793 days ago.

Earlier today, Penn State was surprisingly omitted from the USA Today Coaches Poll despite pulling off such a remarkable upset. At 5-2 (3-1 Big Ten), the Lions earned 80 votes in that poll to finish No. 27 — two shy of a Top 25 ranking.

Ohio State drops to No. 6 after suffering its first loss of the season — all but derailing its playoff hopes for now. The season isn’t over yet, and the Buckeyes may find themselves back in the picture, but their trip to Happy Valley proved to be a costly one indeed.
