Ohio State giveth, and Ohio State taketh away.
Penn State entered the AP Top 25 after stunning Ohio State in 2016, the first time the Lions had been ranked since the sanctions in 2011.
But after appearing in 63 consecutive Top 25 polls (in which it was eligible for), Penn State has dropped out of the AP Top 25 for the first time in four years.
Saturday’s 38-25 loss to Ohio State dropped PSU to 0-2, and the Lions fell from No. 18 all the way out of the poll. They are No. 29 overall in the others receiving votes category.
Only Alabama (204), Ohio State (137) and Clemson (93) were ranked in more consecutive AP polls than Penn State entering last week.
Update: 12:35 p.m.
We now live in a world where Coastal Carolina is ranked in the Top 25, while Penn State is not.
That’s 2020 for you.
PSU’s 0-2 start has dropped it out of the coaches poll, released Sunday afternoon.
Coastal Carolina, by the way, is No. 16 in the coaches poll.
The Lions began the season at No. 7 in that poll, then dropped 10 spots after losing at Indiana.
Saturday’s loss to Ohio State dropped PSU out of the poll altogether. The Lions are 32nd overall in the others receiving votes.
