Penn State moves up in Week 3 USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll – Nittany Lions Wire

Following a dominating performance down south and with some higher-ranked teams taking a loss in Week 3, Penn State is moving up in the latest USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll.
Penn State climbed to No. 15 in the latest edition of the coaches poll, which was released early Sunday afternoon. Penn State moved up eight spots from its previous ranking and jumped a handful of teams along the way. Penn State moved ahead of No. 16 Wake Forest, No. 17 Baylor, No. 19 Texas, and No. 20 Texas A&M despite all of those teams winning in Week 3. The Nittany Lions also benefitted from No. 21 Michigan State, No. 23 BYU, and No. 25 Miami all dropping after a loss this weekend.
Penn State started the season unranked in the Coaches Poll but made its season debut following a Week 2 win against Ohio at No. 23.
Georgia took over the top spot in this week’s coaches poll, swapping spots with Alabama. Georgia received 40 of the 65 possible first-place votes; Alabama received 24 and Ohio State picked up one to keep its No. 3 ranking this week.
There was plenty of movement around the entire coaches poll. Only Ohio State and No. 6 Oklahoma retained their ranking from the previous week.
Michigan (No. 4) joins Penn State, Ohio State, and Michigan State in representing the Big Ten in this week’s coaches poll.
