LINCOLN, Neb. – After an 11-point win on the road Saturday night, and a week after taking down then-No. 22 Oregon, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are into the top 15.
Nebraska (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) moved up five spots in the latest AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll on Sunday, going from No. 20 to No. 15 in both following Saturday night’s 24-13 win at Northwestern (1-3, 0-1).
The Cornhuskers, who still sit behind fellow Big Ten unbeatens Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin in the polls, return home this weekend for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff against Illinois. The Illini are 1-2 on the season and Saturday’s game will be their conference opener.
