Penn State Climbs to No. 3 in AP and Coaches Polls”

Another lopsided SEC win resulted in Auburn moving into the top 10 of the Associated Press poll.

Penn State has moved up a spot in both the USA Today Coaches Poll and the Associated Press top-25 rankings.

Auburn's standing in the AP Top 25 Poll is its highest since it jumped to No. 9 after beating Vanderbilt on November 5 of last season. They've now won four straight games, and Saturday's victory marked the first time Auburn has won three consecutive SEC games by at least 20 points since 1987 - 51-14 at Missouri, 49-10 against Mississippi State and 44-23 against Ole Miss. Right behind Penn State in the AP Poll are Georgia at No. 4 and Washington at No. 5.

Oklahoma State will host Baylor Saturday for a scheduled 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Boone Pickens Stadium.

Wisconsin rounds out the Big Ten's presence in the rankings, coming in at No. 6 in the Coaches Poll and No. 7 in the AP Poll. Miami 12. Oklahoma 13. Virginia Tech 16. Notre Dame 17. N.C. State 21. Michigan State 22.
