Penn State stays at No. 2 in AP poll after impressive win over Michigan

Penn State looked like a bona fide National Championship contender in its blowout win over Michigan on Saturday (see story)

That said, the Nittany Lions remained one spot behind unanimous No. 1 Alabama, who beat Tennessee Saturday, at No. 2. In fact, the top eight teams remain the same from last week's poll, meaning that No. 3 Georgia, No. 4 TCU and No. 5 Wisconsin round out the top five.

With their statement win over the Wolverines, the Nittany Lions knocked Michigan, previously No. 19, entirely out of the Top 25.

Penn State faces its highest ranked opponent of the season on Saturday, when the Nittany Lions travel to Columbus, Ohio, to play No. 6 Ohio State.

Kurt Rawlings connected with Christopher Williams-Lopez for a 4-yard touchdown with 4:11 remaining in the game and Yale rallied for a 24-19 victory over Pennsylvania on Saturday.

Rawlings threw for 199 yards and two scores for the Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1 Ivy League), who won at Penn (2-4, 0-3) for the first time since 2007. Yale's Zane Dudek carried 12 times for 103 yards and a score.

The Quakers, who trailed 18-10 at the half, recovered a pair of fumbles in the fourth quarter to take a 19-18 lead. The first turnover led to Jack Soslow's 44-yard field goal and the second resulted in a 2-yard TD run by Tre Solomon. But Rawlings led the Bulldogs on an 11-play, 80-yard drive for the winning score.

Penn senior Justin Watson caught 10 passes for 120 yards and a 23-yard touchdown reception. It was an Ivy League record 16th career game with at least 100 yards receiving and he tied a school record with a TD catch in his sixth straight game. His 27 career scores ties the school record.
