For the first time since 2016, the Penn State Nittany Lions have fallen out of the Top 25 (in weeks they are eligible). 

The Lions fell to 0-2 after an underwhelming 38-25 loss at home to the Ohio State Buckeyes. This was on the heels of a controversial one-point loss to the Indiana Hoosiers.

The Lions still received 56 points in the Coaches Poll, making them the No. 32 team in the country in the eyes of opposing coaches. They received 87 points in the AP Poll, good for No. 27 in the country.

The Nittany Lions will look to pick up their first win of the season when they welcome Maryland to town next Saturday.
