Penn State was last ranked in football during the 2011 football season. During Week 14, the last poll prior to the bowl season and the following "Final" polls, Penn State was ranked in both the AP (No. 24) and Coaches' (No. 23) polls.
After losing their bowl game, the Nittany Lions were unranked in both final polls.
when was University of Virginia last ranked number 1 in the country
2007, going into the Ohio State game... after losing by a field goal we dropped to 5th and Ohio State went on to play Florida
I believe when they beat jimmy Johnson in a bowl game. I think it was the 1987 game. the last time they won the national championship... but i could be wrong.
It has happened six times: 1951, 1952, 1955, 1957, 1965, and 1966. So, 1966 was the last.
Florida State started the season number 1 and never lost its number 1 ranking while winning the national championship in 1999
Toward the end of the 2002 season. We entered 2003 Season ranked number 2 behind Florida State :) Roll Tide!
1999. 11th ranked Spartans defeated the 4th ranked Wolverines 34-31 in East Lansing.
Because that's two different seasons.
