After losing to Northern Illinois 21-17, Nebraska football remains unranked and received no votes in the latest AP Top 25 rankings which were released Sunday.
The Huskers also did not receive votes in the latest Coaches Poll.
Previous rankings (AP/Amway Coaches Poll): NR/NR
New rankings (AP/Amway Coaches Poll): NR/NR
What it means: It doesn’t mean much at this point in time. After losing to Northern Illinois, it would be crazy to assume Nebraska would receive any votes.
Nebraska jumped into the AP Top 25 last season after going undefeated in nonconference play, but things are very different in 2017. Now 1-2 on the season, it’s going to be a much bigger mountain to overcome for the Huskers in conference play. Unless this drastically changes and fast, it’s hard to see when and if Nebraska will be included the AP Top 25 this season.
What’s next: Nebraska faces Rutgers on Saturday, Sept. 23, at Memorial Stadium. The game will be broadcast at 3:30 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network.
