Penn State Football Ranked No. 12 In College Football Playoff Rankings

Penn State football checked in at the No. 12 spot in this week’s College Football Playoff top 25 rankings.

The Nittany Lions wrapped up their regular season with a 38-3 victory over Maryland at Beaver Stadium to finish with a 9-3 record. Their new ranking bodes well for their New Year’s Six hopes, as the top 12 teams are the most likely recipients for a spot in one of the six biggest bowl games in college football.

In addition to its new ranking from the College Football Playoff committee, Penn State was ranked No. 14 in the AP Top 25 poll and No. 12 in the Coaches’ Poll.

No. 12 Penn State (9-3, 6-3 Big Ten) will learn its postseason destination when the College Football Playoff committee unveils its final rankings of the 2018 season on Sunday.

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]
