The Huskers fell one spot to No. 25 in the weekly poll, released Tuesday after a holiday weekend full of college football. 

Nebraska, of course, beat South Alabama 35-21 despite an underwhelming performance from its offense. 

Among Big Ten teams, Ohio State stayed at No. 5, Michigan at No. 7 and Penn State at No. 15 after comfortable victories. Wisconsin moved up two spots to No. 17 after shutting out South Florida 49-0. Michigan State fell one spot to No. 20 and Iowa remained at No. 21, while Northwestern fell out of the ranking after losing, 17-7, at Stanford. 

NU moved up one spot and into the Amway Coaches Poll, checking in at No. 25 there, too, along with No. 5 Ohio State, No. 7 Michigan, No. 14 Penn State, No. 16 Wisconsin, No. 19 Iowa and No. 20 Michigan State.
