Penn State Football Falls To No. 21 In AP Top 25 Poll

Penn State football checked in at the No. 21 spot in this week’s AP Top 25 poll, down seven spots from last week’s ranking of No. 14.

A tumble in the rankings was inevitable for the Nittany Lions after their 42-7 shellacking at the hands of Michigan, which bounced up to No. 4 in the poll after its win and LSU’s loss to No. 1 Alabama. No team fell farther in this week’s rankings than Penn State, which earned a season-low ranking after the defeat. Its season high in the poll is No. 8, but the team lost to Michigan State after moving up to that spot.

James Franklin’s team also fell to No. 20 in the weekly Coaches’ Poll, down seven spots from its ranking of No. 13 last week. Additionally, the College Football Playoff committee will release its second poll of the 2018 season on Tuesday evening.

No. 21 Penn State (6-3, 3-3 Big Ten) will take on Wisconsin at noon Saturday in its return to 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.
