Penn State football landed at No. 15 in the first AP Top 25 poll of the 2019 college football season.

The Tigers had not been preseason No. 1 in either the AP or USA TODAY Coaches rankings going into the 2019 season but were comfortable top vote-getters in each this month. They must believe in Scott Frost and his squad, who won four of their last six previous year. Clemson is ranked No. 1 (1,540 points), Alabama is No. 2 (1,496) and Georgia is No. 3 (1,403). Michigan was ranked No. 7 while Michigan State was No. 20 in the first Coaches Poll, which was released on August 1.
