Penn State Drops To No. 7 In AP Poll
Penn State dropped to No. 7 in the Associated Press poll today following a heartbreaking fourth quarter loss to Ohio State this weekend in Columbus.
The Buckeyes moved up to No. 3 after the win and Georgia, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, and Clemson all jumped the Nittany Lions with wins. Georgia secured the No. 2 spot after beating Florida 42-7.
The first College Football Playoff ranking of the season will be released Tuesday. This ranking ultimately determines which four teams will move on to the playoffs following the regular season (read: The AP Poll basically means nothing now.)
Even with a conference championship, Penn State was snubbed last year and ranked No. 5 in the CFP ranking.
The Nittany Lions kick off at noon next Saturday at Michigan State.
