Hurricanes' grip weakens on top spot
Miami is still No. 1 in the AP media poll. A shaky No. 1.
The Hurricanes (8-0) held off Boston College 18-7 on Saturday, then held off No. 2 Nebraska (11-0) in Sunday's balloting by the 72 sports writers and broadcasters on the AP panel.
Miami wasn't as lucky in the USA Today/ESPN coaches poll, where Nebraska took over the No. 1 spot, with the Hurricanes second.
In The Associated Press Top 25, Miami received 44 first-place votes and 1,768 points, with Nebraska collecting the other 28 first-place votes and 1,756 points.
Last week, Miami led Nebraska by 36 points. The Huskers are just 12 points behind now.
