After their victory yesterday vs. Illinois, the Huskers find themselves nearly a top 10 team, at least in one poll.

The USA Today/Amway Coaches poll is out, and Nebraska moves up three spots to 12th in this week’s poll, as they head to their bye week.

The Huskers rise up due to not only their win, but the losses of Wisconsin (down 5 spots), Stanford (down 9 spots) and Florida State (down 9 spots as well).

We will add the AP poll when it comes out roughly 1 pm central today.
