LINCOLN, Neb — After Nebraska’s 23-17 loss to Wisconsin on Saturday, the Huskers fell a bit in the polls. But they remain in the top 10.
Nebraska (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) fell four spots to No. 10 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and two spots from No. 7 to No. 9 in the AP Top 25 released on Sunday.
Previous rankings: (Coaches/AP): No. 6/No. 7
New rankings (Coaches/AP): No. 10/No. 9
Last result: 23-17 loss in overtime at Wisconsin on Saturday
What it means: Nebraska is still third-highest ranked Big Ten team, behind No. 2 Michigan and No. 6 Ohio State. All things considered, Nebraska is still ranked in the Top 10 after a hard-fought road loss, so it shows there is some national respect starting to build for Nebraska.
Up next: The Huskers will travel to Columbus, Ohio, this week to play No. 6 Ohio State at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.
