The Nebraska Cornhuskers DROP down to 16th in the Week 3 College Football Playoff Poll on Tuesday evening.

Nebraska (8-1, 4-1 in the Big Ten) had a bye week this past weekend. The Committee drops the Huskers after the week off.

Nebraska was ranked 13th last week in the Week 2 CFB Playoff Poll. They are ranked 11th in both the Amway Coaches and the Associated Press Polls this week.

Ohio State rises up to 8th after defeating Michigan State, who drops down to 12th in the Poll.

The Huskers take on the Wisconsin Badgers in a B1G West showdown on Saturday.
