Following its last regular season football game of the season, Penn State is ranked 10th by the College Football Playoff committee. Ohio State is one, followed by LSU, Clemson and Georgia, respectively. One loss teams Utah, Oklahoma and Baylor are five through seven, all hoping that something breaks their way to earn spot in the four-team championship playoff.
Penn State, by the way, had a pair of defensive standouts named All-Big Ten first team by both the coaches and media. Lineman Yetur Gross-Matos, who declared for the NFL draft a year early yesterday, and Micah Parsons earned the honor. Parsons was also named Big Ten Linebacker of the Year. Offensive winners will be announced today.
