Penn State’s 28-21 victory over Michigan resulted in a jump in both polls.

Joining the Nittany Lions in the rankings are No. 3 Ohio State, No. 13 Wisconsin, who dropped after their upset loss in Champaign to Illinois, No. 17 and fellow undefeated Minnesota, No. 19 Michigan, and No. 19 Iowa.

Penn State also moved up in the Coaches Poll to No. 6. Ohio State (No. 4), Wisconsin (No. 13), Minnesota (No. 16), Iowa (No. 19), and Michigan (No. 20) are the other conference teams in the coaches’ poll.

Penn State travels to Spartan Stadium to play Michigan State at 3:30 on Saturday.
