Hoosiers Crack Poll
(AP) — Indiana jumped into The Associated Press college football poll Sunday after pulling off the weekend’s most dramatic upset.
Indiana is No. 17 after beating No. 8 Penn State in overtime, the Hoosiers’ first victory against a team ranked in the AP top 10 since 1987. It’s Indiana’s highest ranking since 1993.
Penn State slipped 10 spots to No. 18 after losing to the Hoosiers for just the second time in 24 meetings since joining the Big Ten.
Clemson remains a rock-solid No. 1 and Alabama is second. The Tigers received 52 first-place votes and the Crimson Tide got the remaining 10.
Ohio State, Notre Dame and Georgia round out the top 5 and are followed by Oklahoma State, Cincinnati, Texas A&M, Wisconsin and Florida.
