NEW YORK (AP) — Nebraska moved up two spots in the latest Associated Press college football poll after its 32-23 comeback win over Penn State on Saturday in Lincoln.
The Huskers (8-2 overall, 5-1 Big Ten) are ranked 16th, one spot ahead of UCLA. The Bruins beat NU 36-30 in Pasadena, Calif., on Sept. 8.
NU also moved up two spots, from 16th to 14th, in the coaches' poll.
Ohio State, 10-0 but ineligible for postseason play, had a bye and fell one spot to No. 6. Michigan re-entered the poll at No. 23 after beating Northwestern 38-31.
Oregon became the new No. 1 after Alabama gave up the top spot following a loss to Texas A&M.
The Ducks have 45 of 60 first-place votes. Kansas State is No. 2 with 14 first-place votes. Notre Dame is third and received one first-place vote.
The Crimson Tide, which had been No. 1 for 10 straight weeks, dropped to fourth after a 29-24 loss to the Aggies in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Saturday.
Texas A&M moved up six spots to No. 9.
The Ducks were last No. 1 in 2010. That was the first season in the history of the program that Oregon reached No. 1, and the Ducks spent seven weeks there and reached the BCS championship game, which they lost to Auburn.
No. 25 Kent State is ranked for first time since Nov. 5, 1973.
