Penn State Football Ranked No. 10 In Preseason AP Top 25

Penn State football was ranked No. 10 in the preseason AP Top 25 poll.

This is the Nittany Lions’ second consecutive ranking in the poll; prior to last season, the team hadn’t earned a preseason ranking since 2010.

Penn State is one of five Big Ten teams in the poll. The team checks in behind Wisconsin (No. 4) and Ohio State (No. 5), but ahead of Michigan State (No. 11) and Michigan (No. 14).

Last season, Penn State finished the season at No. 8 following its Fiesta Bowl victory over Washington. The team checks in at No. 9 in the first coaches’ poll of the 2018 season, which was released earlier in August.

Led by third-year starting quarterback Trace McSorley, Penn State opens its 2018 season against Appalachian State on September 1. The game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. at Beaver Stadium.

About the Author

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard. If you, for some reason, feel compelled to see what Mikey has to say on the internet, follow him on Twitter @Mikey_Mandarino. You can also get in touch with Mikey via his big-boy email address: [email protected]
