It’s another top 15 ranking for your Nebraska Cornhuskers.

After their 28-7 win against Maryland yesterday, the Huskers moved up 2 spots to 15th in this week’s USA Today/Amway Coaches poll. The Huskers rise was helped by the loss of West Virginia (Oklahoma)and Utah (Oregon) in their rise.

Four Big Ten teams stay in the top 8 of the poll, with Ohio State at 2, Michigan at 4, Wisconsin at 6 and Penn State at 8.

The Huskers end their regular season on the road at Iowa, which will be a 2:30 kickoff on Friday. The Hawkeyes received one vote this week in the poll.
