The Nebraska Cornhuskers, fresh off their 24-17 victory over Minnesota yesterday, move up to 17th in this week’s USA Today/Amway Coaches Poll.

The Huskers, 8-2 on the season and 5-2 in Big Ten Conference play, were 20th last week after the Ohio State debacle.

Nebraska will host Maryland in their Senior Day festivities at 11 a.m. Central on ESPNNews.
