The Huskers returned to the top 25 of college football polls released Sunday on the heels of their 23-9 win over Michigan Saturday night.

Nebraska (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) is 21st in both The Associated Press media poll and USA Today coaches poll. The Huskers play at Michigan State this Saturday.

The Wolverines, who were 20th in the AP, dropped out of both polls. They've now gone two straight games without scoring a touchdown, a first since the early 1960s, and played the second half of Saturday's loss in Lincoln without quarterback Denard Robinson.

Robinson injured a nerve in his right elbow late in the first half. Coach Brady Hoke said after the game he wasn't concerned about Robinson's availability this Saturday when Michigan plays at Minnesota. The Wolverines (5-3, 3-1 Big Ten) share first place in the Legends Division with Nebraska, but the Cornhuskers own the tiebreaker.

No. 3 Kansas State and No. 4 Notre Dame each moved up a spot in the AP ranking, setting up a final four of sorts for the last month of the regular season.

Alabama is No. 1 for the ninth straight week and it is unanimous. The Crimson Tide received all 60 first-place votes. Oregon is No. 2 for the sixth straight week.

Florida's 17-9 loss to Georgia dropped the Gators five spots to No. 8 and allowed Kansas State and Notre Dame each to move up a spot after victories. Now the top four are all undefeated and none will play any other the rest of the way.

LSU is No. 5, followed by Ohio State and Georgia, which moved up five spots in the AP.
