The Huskers (2-0) slipped from 22nd to 23rd place in The Associated Press poll and moved up four spots from 19th to 15th in the USA Today coaches poll released Sunday.

After thumping Southern Mississippi 56-13, Nebraska hosts UCLA (1-0), 16th in the AP and 17th in USA Today, this Saturday. The Bruins rolled up 653 yards in a 36-30 win in Los Angeles last year.

Texas and Southern California dropped out of the top 25 after ugly losses and Miami jumped in at No. 15 after its biggest victory in a while.

Alabama is still No. 1 after an off week, heading into a much-anticipated rematch with No. 6 Texas A&M on Saturday. Oregon is No. 2 while Clemson moved up a spot to No. 3 and Ohio State slipped one to No. 4. Stanford remains No. 5.

The Longhorns came into the weekend ranked 15th, but a 40-21 loss at BYU in which Texas allowed a school-record 550 yards rushing has Mack Brown's team unranked. Southern California was No. 25 before a 10-7 loss at home to Washington State. Miami is ranked for the first time since November 2010.
