Penn State Comes In At No. 8 In AP Top 25
The Nittany Lions remained at No. 8 in this week’s AP Top 25 Poll after defeating Michigan State in the regular season finale. The Lions came in at No. 8 last week in front of No. 9 Colorado, who also remained in the same place.
Most of the fluctuation came at the top of the Poll with Michigan falling from No. 3 to No. 5 after losing to Ohio State in Columbus. Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, and Washington now round out the top-four, which is also how the College Football Playoff rankings are expected to shape up.
The Lions can leapfrog Wisconsin with a victory in Indianapolis next weekend and could likely play themselves into the College Football Playoff with some help from the top.
The College Football Playoff rankings come out Tuesday at 7 p.m.
