Penn State Football Ranked No. 10 In AP Top 25 Poll

Penn State football moved up one spot to No. 10 in this week’s AP Top 25 Poll.

The Nittany Lions are coming off a gritty 17-7 win over Northwestern Saturday afternoon in Beaver Stadium. The team battled through some pesky weather conditions to escape the day with a victory. It wasn’t a sexy one, though, as Penn State’s running backs fumbled four times and Sean Clifford registered one interception. Still, a win is a win, something Texas A&M and Oklahoma couldn’t get this week.

Big Ten peers Ohio State (No. 3) and Michigan (No. 4) stayed put in the AP Poll, and Minnesota fell out of the top 25 after losing to Purdue 20-10.

As for the USA Today Coaches Poll, Penn State moved to No. 10, while Ohio State came in at No. 3, and Michigan at No. 4.

The Nittany Lions will be off next weekend, as the team heads into its bye week. Penn State will then be back in action when it takes on No. 4 Michigan on Saturday, October 15 at the Big House in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
