PSU in the polls: Lions move up one spot in both polls

This week's coaches poll.

Penn State rose one spot in this week’s coaches poll, from No. 8 to No. 7.

The Nittany Lions also moved up one spot in the AP poll, from No. 9 to No. 8.

North Carolina had been No. 5/6 in the polls but lost to Florida State and dropped to 13/14.

Georgia had been No. 3 in both polls and dropped only one spot to No. 4 after a loss at Alabama.

So, Penn State only jumped one team — UNC — in moving up to No. 7 and No. 8 in the polls.

Ohio State stayed even at No. 5 in both polls. Wisconsin is No. 14 in both polls. Michigan is No. 17 in the coaches poll and 18 in the AP poll. Minnesota is No. 21 in both polls.
