Penn State Football: Updated Bowl Projections

by on October 30, 2017 2:30 PM

It might be easy to forget, but Penn State's season is not in fact over, and the Nittany Lions are still in the playoff conversation heading into the final third of the year.

With the College Football Playoff standings set for their first release on Tuesday night, Penn State will get a good idea of where it stands heading into November. From there it will come down to the rest of the schedule, and taking care of the remaining four games of the regular season.

So where do bowl projects have Penn State heading into Week 9? Better than you might expect.




CBS, Jerry Palm: New Orleans for Sugar Bowl against Alabama as the No.4 seed.

SI: Atlanta for Peach Bowl against UCF

Sporting News: Miami for Orange Bowl against Clemson

SBNation: Arlington for Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma

ESPN: Arlington for Cotton Bowl against TCU or Miami

And if you're into the Vegas odds? Penn State is sitting at 20/1 to win the whole thing, even if the Nittany Lions are currently on the outside looking in when it comes to making the playoff field.

ESPN will air the CFP ranking show on Tuesday at 7:00 PM.
