Penn State Moves up in Latest Top 25 Rankings

Penn State Football at Home

The new rankings are in, and to little, if any, surprise, Penn State moved up after its convincing 41-12 win over Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Penn State moved from No. 22 to No. 14, and with Michigan State’s loss to Washington, is now behind only Ohio State (No. 3) and Michigan (No. 4) in the rankings. Michigan is Penn State’s next big test.

After Penn State hosts Central Michigan this coming Saturday and Northwestern the first day of October, coach James Franklin’s team has its bye the week of Oct. 8.

Penn State’s first game out of the bye is in Ann Arbor Oct. 15. Two weeks later, Penn State hosts Ohio State in Beaver Stadium.

After starting the season unranked and not being rated after Week 1, Penn State cracked the top 25 following Week 2’s win over Ohio.

Penn State finished unranked in both 2020 and 2021, going 4-5 and 7-6, respectively, in those years.

The team’s game against Central Michigan is scheduled for noon on the Big Ten Network.
