It’s Sunday morning after an impressive victory over Iowa. As we await this week’s AP and USA Today polls, I ask the burning question: Why the hell shouldn’t Penn State be ranked in the top 25? I think they deserve it.
Iowa State, Michigan, Texas, and Stanford were all in there last week with 4-2 records. With a 5-2 record Penn State should be right around 25.
They received one AP vote last week. This week, they should get more.
I’ll assume that the BCS will not come into play due to the Penn State’s post season ineligibility, but does the non-football scandal at Penn State hurt its chances to be ranked by the independent polls, or do you think the Cinderella factor might actually work in favor of the Nittany Lions?
In any event, we’ll know soon.
