Penn State Football Ranked No. 17 In Final AP Top 25 Poll Of 2018 Season

Penn State football checked in at No. 17 in the final AP Top 25 poll of the 2018 college football season.

The Nittany Lions moved down four spots after falling to Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl. Penn State’s season high in the poll was No. 8 prior to its contest against Michigan State, and its season-low was No. 21 after losing to Michigan 42-7 in week 10. James Franklin’s program was ranked at No. 12 in the final College Football Playoff poll of the season just before the start of bowl season.

This marks the third consecutive season in which Penn State has finished in the AP Top 25 poll. It finished the 2016 season at No. 7 in the poll and the 2017 season as the No. 8 team in the country.

Penn State will next take the field on April 13 for the annual Blue-White spring football game at Beaver Stadium. Its 2019 regular season will begin on August 31 with a game against Idaho.

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.
