Following a thorough win over the Michigan Wolverines in Week 9, the Nebraska Cornhuskers earned the No. 21 spot in college football this week in Sundays AP Top 25 poll.

Nebraska clung to a narrow 7-6 advantage at halftime on Saturday night, but held the Wolverines to just three points over the final two quarters after Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was forced to the sideline with an injury. The Huskers, who are scheduled to host Minnesota on Nov. 17 at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, are now 6-2 on the year and remain in a tie (despite owning the tiebreaker) with Michigan at 3-1 in Big Ten play.

Fresh off a momentum-building 44-28 win over Purdue, the Minnesota Gophers moved to 5-3 overall despite not garnering any attention from voters in Week 10. Jerry Kill's team will try to keep things going against Michigan this Saturday, in a game that will once again prove pivotal in the Big Ten race.
