Penn State Moves Up To No. 3 In AP Poll

After staying put at No. 4 for three weeks, Penn State rose in the rankings following its win over conference opponent Northwestern Saturday.

The Nittany Lions secured the No. 3 spot in this week’s AP Poll — surpassing Oklahoma after the Sooners’ loss at home to then-unranked Iowa State.

Alabama once again held on to the top spot this week and Clemson stayed ahead of the Nittany Lions at No. 2 as each team beat an unranked opponent.

The ranking is Penn State’s highest since November of 2008, when Joe Paterno’s squad was No. 3 heading into a matchup with Iowa.

The Nittany Lions also rose up to No. 3 in this week’s Coaches Poll.
