Nebraska Football Drops in AP Poll, Rises in Coaches Poll

Eric Francis

Nebraska rose in the coaches poll to #15 after being #19 last week, but dropped in the AP Poll to #23.

Nebraska dropped a spot in the AP Top 25, from 22nd to 23rd despite their 56-13 dismantling of Southern Miss. Baylor moved ahead of the Huskers apparently because their 70-13 thrashing of Buffalo was more impressive.

Georgia, Michigan, and Miami rose significantly after big wins, Miami entering the poll for the the first time this season at #15 in the AP and #18 in the Coaches.

The Huskers rose in the coaches poll, from 19th to 15th.

If someone wants to explain all this, have at it.
