***** Northwestern is a 25.5-point underdog to Penn State. ***** For the 2022 season, NU is officially unranked. ***** Unofficially, CollegeFootballNews.com now ranks NU 105th, just behind 104th-place Miami of Ohio. Miami, we should note, DROPPED six spots after beating NU. Apparently, defeating Chicago's Big Ten team just isn't worth a whole lot these days. ***** CBS Sports has not yet released its rankings. Last week, NU was 104th. Expect NU to wind up in the 107 to 110 range. ***** For breaking news and updates, visit the HTP Twitter Feed *****
