It comes after Nebraska earned its second win over a ranked team this season, 3-1 over then No. 13 Penn State. The Huskers are 2-3 against ranked teams.

Texas remains No. 1, while Louisville has moved to No. 2. They are the only undefeated teams in the poll. Wisconsin is ranked third and Pittsburgh fourth.

Minnesota dropped out of the top 10 to 12th after losing to unranked Michigan. Penn State dropped to 15th.

Creighton (17-2) is 19th.

This week, Nebraska faces two unranked teams: Indiana on Wednesday and Illinois on Saturday.

For three weeks into the Big Ten season, Nebraska leads the league at 6-0 – one game ahead of Wisconsin, Purdue and Penn State.

Each of the three NCAA Division I programs in the state conducts its conferences. Creighton is 5-1 and tied for first in the Big East, and Omaha is first in the Summit League at 6-0.
