Penn State Comes In At No. 9 In Final College Football Playoff Poll Of Season
The dust has finally settled and the playoff selection committee has made its decision. The Nittany Lions came in at No. 9 in the final CFP poll of the season, and although the ranking means no playoff berth, the team is almost guaranteed a New Year’s Six spot.
Ohio State stayed ahead of the Nittany Lions in the final ranking of the season thanks to a thrilling 27-21 Buckeye victory over previously undefeated Wisconsin to clinch the Big Ten Championship.
This is the second consecutive season Penn State has finished inside the top 10 — an impressive feat, and a telling statistic that helps paint a clear picture of where James Franklin has guided the program. The Nittany Lions finished the 2016 season at No. 5 in the CFP poll after defeating Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game.
Penn State also came in at No. 9 in the final AP Top-25 Poll of the regular season.
