Huskers crack top 10 in Coaches, AP poll

From a ranking as high as fourth in the country prior to the Texas loss two weeks ago, it hasn't been a long road back into the top 10 for the Big Red. Two weeks and two victories over ranked teams later, the Huskers now make it back into the top 10 in both the Coaches Poll and the AP.

The BCS will be released later this evening. Last week the Huskers were ranked 14th.
