It isn't RI - RI rarely happens with colubrids unless husbandry is sub-par for a long time - alot longer than two weeks. And even then, it still is rare.

He is either going to shed, or he has dust up his nostrils.

I know you and Doug already reached that conclusion, just letting you know that sneezing is usually caused by dust or an up and coming shed. Now if you had blood pythons, an RI is probable. But a cornsnake at 80 deg, doubtful.

Change out that bedding, go to carpet or paper. Bark is notorious for causing sneezing in some individuals unless misted enough to keep the bark particles adhered to the bark. Once dry, that dust is a nuisance. Same with some brands of aspen chips - too much dust. Coir fiber is one substrate that is not dusty, even though it would seem so. The ZooMed and Tech Lab shredded aspen is pretty good too.
