Penn State Football Climbs Five Spots in New AP Top 25

by on November 11, 2018 2:29 PM

Penn State football is ranked at No. 16 in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The Nittany Lions smothered Wisconsin 22-10 on Saturday to clinch their 14th consecutive winning season. Penn State’s offense didn’t dominate, but the defense put on a show en route to its seventh victory of the 2018 season. James Franklin’s program reached a season-high No. 8 in the poll in week 7 and moved up five spots from its season-low ranking of No. 21 last week.

In addition to the AP Top 25 poll, Penn State checked in at No. 15 in the week 12 Coaches’ Poll, moving up five spots from last week’s poll. The College Football Playoff committee will also unveil its latest top 25 rankings on Tuesday evening. Penn State was ranked No. 20 in last week's CFP rankings.

The Nittany Lions will take on Rutgers at noon Saturday at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
