Penn State Football Falls To No. 18 In AP Top 25

Penn State football slipped down to No. 18 in the latest AP Top 25 poll.

The Nittany Lions were upset by Michigan State — which re-entered the poll at the No. 24 spot — at Beaver Stadium on Saturday. Penn State hung around the No. 10 spot for the duration of this season until today’s poll was released. Its No. 8 ranking ahead of yesterday’s Homecoming game was its highest of the season, and its previous low was No. 13 in week 2.

In addition to the AP Poll, the Nittany Lions checked in at No. 16 in this week’s Coaches’ Poll.

No. 18 Penn State will be back in action at 3:30 p.m. Saturday for a Big Ten road game against Indiana. The game will be broadcast on ABC.

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.
