PROMINENCE? someone explain please

"Nebraska is exiting much like it entered the Big 12. Back in '96, the Huskers were projected as one of the best teams in the country and the favorite to win the conference championship. And although there were some trying seasons under Frank Solich and Bill Callahan earlier this century, the Huskers have returned to prominence and want to show they're back among the elite. "

 

If someone will please tell me how beating florida atlantic, ark state, ULaLa, Baylor and Kstate gets you back to prominence i'd certainly appreciate it!  They beat one top 25 team all last year and they're somehow prominent!  I just don't get it.  The surest bet in the football world this year is for the total wins of NU to be under 9.5.  I don't dislike NU at all, i just don't get everyone's reasoning.
