YellowSkarmory 3 The OT game against App State is slightly unsettling even though App State is 2-1, resume isn't enough to get past OSU.

Colton3690 5 Penn State has been lurking so far this year, despite putting up monster numbers on offense. They started slow against Illinois, and the defense is a bit of a concern up to this point.

stripes361 5 Penn State is still maddeningly inconsistent but have a 40% chance to reach the CFP according to ESPN Analytics. They were my preseason darkhorse for the Playoff and, if they can beat the Buckeyes at home this Saturday, will move from darkhorse status to entrenched contender.

Charlemagne42 9 589, -76, 513; Penn State's wins aren't impressive yet. The model really likes their upcoming B1G East schedule, but they get a penalty until they come through that schedule unscathed.

Miami_da_U 10 So far they've just out-talented their opponents. I wasn't impressed with their win over App St, And even this game vs Illinois was very close until the 4th qtr where PSU far superior talent took over. The problem with that is they are not more talented than tOSU. I expect a heavy dose of the run game with Miles Sanders. And they're lucky Bosa is out. McSorely has a disappointing ypa and Comp% but his TD% is solid. He's gotta give his best game to win this one.

T-Thugs 20 Penn State still is lower than they probably should be in my poll due to their lack of a standout win. Best win is over Pittsburgh (not very good). They will have lots of opportunities to move up soon though, starting with a game vs Ohio State this week. A win there would jump them very far up the poll.
