24. Penn State (1-0) – Being a ranked team was a dream just two years ago when the NCAA hit the Nittany Lions with huge scholarship reductions and a bowl ban. But after Christian Hackenberg went 32-for-47 for 454 yards and helped set up Sam Ficken’s fourth field goal of the game, this one at the buzzer, Penn State is back among the best…. at least for a week.

Last game: Beat UCF, 26-24
Next game: Saturday vs. Akron
