Penn State Football Checks In At No. 13 In Latest AP Top-25 Ranking
Penn State football is back to its winning ways, and a flurry of commotion throughout the college football landscape helped the Nittany Lions keep its spot in the middle of the pack at No. 13.
After suffering two consecutive losses in as many weeks, the Nittany Lions took down Rutgers in commanding fashion on Saturday to get another W in the win column. Though the victory is sweet, the thought of where Penn State might stand in the polls — more importantly the College Football Playoff poll — if it had gotten past Michigan State on that fateful afternoon in East Lansing remains sour.
Losses to No. 1 Georgia, No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 8 TCU, and No. 9 Washington could’ve meant a significant vault up the poll if Penn State only had one loss to its name. Hindsight is 20/20, sure, but it stings still the same.
The Nittany Lions aren’t expected to move too significantly when the CFP poll comes out on Tuesday.
