In a week where the Huskers lost to Minnesota but beat Creighton the coaches decided to keep Nebraska where they were the week before at #25. The AP, on the other hand, dropped the Huskers to what would technically be #26th with 115 votes. They were previously #24 in the AP.
Kansas saw themselves jump to #1 in both polls after Gonzaga had their first loss of the season to #7 Tennessee.
Other Big Ten teams that are ranked:
- Michigan #5 Coaches, AP
- Michigan State #9 Coaches, AP
- Ohio State #14 Coaches #15 AP
- Wisconsin #16 AP #19 Coaches
- Iowa #21 Coaches #22 AP
- Maryland #23 Coaches
Also of note is Texas Tech who sit at #11 in both the AP and Coaches polls. The Red Raiders beat Nebraska 70-52 back on November 20th in Kansas City. All of a sudden that loss doesn’t look as bad as it did a few weeks ago.
