In the latest Associated Press and coaches polls released Sunday, Alabama kept the No. 1 spot, with Ohio State remaining at No. 2. The Huskers, who beat Northwestern 24-13 on Saturday, moved up the rankings from 20th last week to claim the 15th spot in both polls.

Louisville was No. 3 in the AP rankings and fourth in the coaches poll, while Michigan was at No. 4 in the AP poll and ranked fifth by the coaches. Clemson was third (coaches) and fifth (AP). Wisconsin moved up to eighth in both polls.

The Big Ten has five teams in the AP Top 25: No. 2 Ohio State, No. 4 Michigan, No. 8 Wisconsin, No. 15 Nebraska and No. 17 Michigan State. The Iowa Hawkeyes were also receiving points in the poll.

The No. 15 ranking this week marks the highest ranking for NU since the Huskers spent one week at No. 11 in the AP poll late in the 2014 season.
