Despite their 23-20 loss to Iowa, the Penn State Nittany Lions remain in the top 10, and come in at No. 7 in this week's AP Poll. Iowa jumped up to No. 2 and Georgia is ranked No. 1 for the first time since 1982. Penn State fans know how that season ended for the Bulldogs, as well as the Nittany Lions  

Like the coaches poll, the Big Ten now has five teams in the Top 10. The Nittany Lions remain ahead of Michigan and Michigan State and just one spot behind Ohio State.
