Penn State Stays at No. 4, Further Fallout From Week 6 AP Poll

Penn State may have been jumped by Iowa in the latest AP Top 25 Poll, but the Nittany Lions will not have long to think about it with the Hawkeyes hosting the Lions this Saturday in a battle of top four teams.

Fresh off a 52-14 win over Maryland, forcing six interceptions from the Terrapins, Iowa jumped from No. 5 to No. 3 this week, just behind resident SEC powerhouses Alabama (1,541 points and 59 first-place votes) and Georgia (1,497 points and nine first-place votes).

Iowa (1,381 points) and Penn State (1,360 points) will meet at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday, a 4 p.m. kickoff slated to determine the team in the driver’s seat in the conference. Funny enough, College GameDay will not be making an appearance in Iowa City in favor of Austin, Texas…

Cincinnati (1,320 points) joins Alabama, Georgia, Iowa and Penn State in the new-look Top 5.

The Top 5 might be loaded with Big 10 schools, and the Top 10 is comprised of two more teams from the conference.

Ohio State (1,094 points) jumped four spots to No. 7, righting the ship with sizeable wins over Akron and Rutgers over the past two weeks. Accordingly, Michigan (1,053 points) has continued its rise up the rankings, checking in at No. 9 following a 38-17 win over Wisconsin on Saturday.

Michigan State (852 points) made one of the biggest jumps of the week, rising from No. 17 to No. 12 as an unbeaten season continues in East Lansing, Michigan.

With five teams ranked inside the Top 25, the Big 10, surprisingly, has no teams into the “Also receiving votes” category.
