Penn State Football Ranked No. 22 In AP Top 25 Poll

Penn State football is back in the AP Top 25 Poll, folks.

After being unranked in the first two polls, the Nittany Lions came in at No. 22 in this week’s poll.

James Franklin’s squad cracks the top 25 after a smooth 46-10 win over Ohio University in Penn State’s home opener Saturday, marking the first time it has been ranked since week 11 of last season when the crew was No. 22 before losing to Michigan at home. Sean Clifford threw for 213 yards and a touchdown before being replaced by Drew Allar, who put on a show, completing six of eight passes for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Penn State enters after a crazy day in college football that saw a flurry of upsets, including No. 24 Tennessee knocking off No. 17 Pitt 34-27 in Pittsburgh.

Ahead of the Nittany Lions are Big Ten foes Ohio State (No. 3), Michigan (No. 4), and Michigan State (No. 11).

As for the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Nittany Lions came in at No. 23. Ohio State (No. 3), Michigan (No. 5), and Michigan State (No. 9) all remain ahead of Penn State on that front, as well.

We’ll find out if the blue and white are top 25-worthy this weekend, as the Nittany Lions will travel to Jordan-Hare Stadium for a tough road matchup with Auburn at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 17.
