Penn State is ranked No. 11 in No. 12 in this week’s coaches poll and No. 12 in the AP, rising three spots from last week in both.

Penn State is the third-highest ranked Big Ten team, behind fellow Big Ten East members Ohio State and Michigan, who are numbers three and four respectively. Minnesota is the last of the four Big Ten schools ranked, making its Top 25 debut at No. 23. Minnesota is in the top 25 and Michigan State is out after Minnesota pounded Sparty, 34-7, Saturday.

Ohio State and Michigan are also No’s. 3 and 4 in the AP Poll and Minnesota is No. 21.

Penn State plays the Big Ten’s other three ranked teams in consecutive weeks. The team’s first game coming out of its bye week is at Michigan Oct. 15. The next week, Penn State hosts Minnesota for its annual White Out game before Ohio State comes to Happy Valley to play Penn State Oct. 29.

Penn State is also No. 10 in the National Football Foundation’s weekly poll.
