Penn State moves up to No. 14 in updated AP Top 25

Following a wild weekend of college football around the country, especially in the south, the AP Top 25 voters had a tough challenge in sifting through the rubble when casting their ballots this week. Fortunately, the top of the poll was once again pretty easy to figure out with Georgia and Ohio State holding form, but the top 10 and beyond was a different story for voters this week.

Penn State took advantage of losses suffered by Kansas State and Illinois to move up two spots in this week’s AP Top 25. Penn State moved up two spots and is No. 14 in the AP Top 25 this week after a win over Indiana. Illinois fell seven spots from No. 14 to No. 21 with a loss to Michigan State, and Kansas State fell from No. 13 down to No. 23 this week after losing at home to Texas (the Longhorns remained No. 18, unable to move up despite the road win in all of the changes this weekend).

Penn State is ranked one spot higher in this week’s AP poll compared to this week’s USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll.
