A week after moving back into The Associated Press Top 25 College Football Poll, the Huskers dropped back out Sunday following their 34-23 loss to Minnesota.
Nebraska was 25th despite having a bye week. NU also fell from the USA Today coaches poll after being rated 21st a week ago.
Baylor climbs to number five in both polls, its best ranking in 60 years. The Bears beat Kansas 59-14 and moved up a spot after Missouri took its first loss. The only higher ranking for the Bears came in November 1953 when they were third.

No. 2 Oregon got three first-place votes in the AP (six in USA Today) following a 42-14 victory against UCLA. No. 3 Florida State pounded North Carolina State 49-17 and drew two first-place votes from the media panel. No. 4 Ohio State handed Penn State its worst loss in more than a century, 63-14.
