Penn State Football Moves Up To No. 17 In AP Top 25

Penn State football checked in at No. 17 in the most recent AP Top 25 Poll.

The Nittany Lions took down Indiana in Bloomington on Saturday afternoon during a game that was much closer than it probably should’ve been. The team hovered around the No. 10 spot in the AP poll for most of the season before sliding all the way down to a season-low No. 18 last week. Penn State’s highest ranking of the season came in the week 7 poll, when the team was ranked No. 8 following its bye week.

On top of its new AP Poll ranking, Penn State stayed put at No. 16 in the Coaches’ Poll. The College Football Playoff committee will also unveil its first top 25 poll of the 2018 season on Tuesday, October 30.

No. 17 Penn State will host No. 18 Iowa at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, its first of three consecutive games against ranked opponents.

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.
