Saturday night’s come-from-behind win over Wisconsin bumped Nebraska up only one spot in The Associated Press Top 25 College Football Poll, from 22nd to 21st place. The Huskers remained at number 20 in the USA Today coaches poll, also released on Sunday.
Alabama is a unanimous No. 1 and LSU slipped another spot in the AP poll. The Crimson Tide received all 60 first-place votes for the first time this season. The Tigers had a second straight sketchy performance, this time against Towson, and dropped a spot for the second consecutive week. LSU won 38-22 at home against the FCS opponent Saturday night and is ranked No. 4 in the new media poll.
Oregon remained No. 2 and Florida State moved past LSU to No. 3.
After beating Stanford on Thursday, Washington moved into the rankings at No. 23. No. 24 Northwestern is ranked for the first time this season.
