Penn State Climbs To No. 10 In College Football Playoff Rankings

James Franklin’s Nittany Lions reached new heights Tuesday, as the latest College Football Playoff Rankings bumped them up to No. 10 in the nation. Penn State is back in the Top 10 for the first time since finishing the 2009 season No. 9 in the AP Poll.

Penn State (7-2, 5-1 Big Ten) checked in at No. 12 in the CFP Committee’s first release last week, but saw itself jump Nebraska and Florida following both teams’ lopsided losses to Ohio State and Arkansas, respectively. Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes found themselves at No. 5, while bitter rival Michigan was ranked two spots ahead of them at No. 3. Wisconsin is up one spot to No. 7 after topping Northwestern 21-7 in Evanston Saturday. Rounding out the Big Ten representatives are the Cornhuskers, who fall to No. 19.

The Nittany Lions still have plenty of work left to do with three games remaining in the regular season. They’ll travel to Bloomington for a conference clash with Indiana this Saturday in Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for noon ET on ABC/ESPN2.
