Surging Penn State soars in latest AP & Coaches polls

Surging Penn State soars in latest AP & Coaches polls

The latest AP and Coaches polls were released Sunday, and Michigan continues to pace the Big Ten.

The Wolverines, fresh off a 59-3 demolition of Maryland, come in at No. 2 (AP)/No. 3 (Coaches), dropping one spot in the latter ranking.

Ohio State (No. 6/No. 5) and Wisconsin (No. 7/No. 7) follow the Big Ten’s lone unbeaten, while surging Penn State (No. 12/No. 14) isn’t too far behind. Following back-to-back losses, Nebraska drops to No. 21/No. 20.

Reminder: These polls mean nothing now that the College Football Playoff rankings are released every Tuesday night.
