Nebraska stayed at No. 11, and Creighton dropped one spot to No. 22 in this week's coaches poll.
The Huskers (20-6, 15-3) only played once last week. They swept No. 15 Penn State on Friday. Rutgers forfeited Saturday's match against Nebraska — and a win was applied to NU's Big Ten record.
Heading into the final weekend of the regular season, the Huskers are tied in first place with No. 5 Wisconsin (23-3, 15-3). Those two teams play Friday in Madison, Wisconsin. NU also has to play at No. 6 Purdue (22-5, 14-4) on Saturday.
Creighton finished its regular season Sunday and clinched a share of the Big East championship — its eighth straight league title. CU swept Seton Hall and St. John's this past weekend.
The Jays (28-3) will be the No. 1 seed at the four-team Big East tournament, which begins Friday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They open against No. 4 seed DePaul.
