The Nittany Lions stay in the top fifteen headed into rivalry week.

Syndication: Hanover Evening Sun Dan Rainville / USA TODAY NETWORK

After a decisive win over Rutgers, the Nittany Lions essentially held steady this week, coming in one spot up at #11 in this week’s college football playoff rankings. Only Missouri (at #9) is a higher ranked two-loss team than PSU.

Next up for Penn State is a Black Friday night game in Detroit against Michigan State, who, under an interim coach, will not be going bowling this season.

Former Nittany Lion opponents Ohio State (#2), Michigan (#3), and Iowa (down to 17) all are in the current rankings. The Hawkeyes’ win last week over Illinois makes them the winner of the Big Ten West; they will face the winner of this week’s OSU/UM game, which will determine the final winner of the Big Ten East.
