LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska edged Indiana 27-22 on Saturday and by default, moved up in the AP Poll.
The Huskers are now No. 8, jumping ahead of Wisconsin, which fell to Ohio State 30-23 in overtime on Saturday night. Baylor comes in at No. 9.
The Big Ten still has four teams in the top 10 of both polls. Michigan jumped Clemson to move to No. 3 in the AP Poll and Ohio State remains entrenched at No. 2 in both. The Badgers sit at 10 in both polls, as well.
Nebraska’s ranking could see some change in the next few weeks. After a home date against Purdue, the Huskers play at Wisconsin and at Ohio State in consecutive weeks. That’s when we’ll really know how good this team is.
