Penn State up to No. 13 in AP, Coaches Polls

Penn State has moved up three spots in the AP and Coaches Polls after its 45-17 win over Minnesota Saturday night at Beaver Stadium.

Coach James Franklin’s team fell from No. 10 to No. 16 after losing 41-17 at Michigan Oct. 15. Now, its back in the top half of the top 20 ahead of its matchup with Ohio State at Beaver Stadium Oct. 29.

Ohio State is ranked No. 2 in both polls and is coming off a 54-10 boat-racing of Iowa in Columbus.

Michigan, which took care of Penn State in this year’s meeting, is the Big Ten’s second-highest ranked team, coming in at No. 4 in both polls.

Illinois is the Big Ten’s last of four ranked teams, coming in at No. 17 in the AP Poll and No. 18 in the  coaches.

Penn State doesn’t play Illinois this season.

No unranked Big Ten school received any top 25 votes in the coaches poll. Maryland received eight in the AP.

Penn State plays Maryland Nov. 12 at Beaver Stadium.

Elsewhere in the top 25, Georgia remains No. 1 in both polls. The AP top four is Georgia, Ohio State, Tennessee and Michigan. The Coaches Poll top four has the same teams in a slightly different order, with Tennessee and Michigan filling the 3-4 spots.

Penn State’s game with Ohio State is scheduled for noon Saturday. It will be the first time Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” show will be in Happy Valley.
