Nebraska football remains unranked and received no votes in the latest AP Top 25 rankings, released Sunday.
Previous rankings (AP/Amway Coaches Poll): NR/NR
New rankings (AP/Amway Coaches Poll): NR/NR
What it means: It’s hard to justify votes for Nebraska after losing 42-35 to Oregon on Saturday, especially after the Huskers had only received one vote in last week’s AP Top 25. Had Nebraska beat Oregon? Obviously a different story.
Nebraska jumped into the AP Top 25 last season after going undefeated in nonconference play. With the Huskers currently sitting at 1-1 on the season, it’ll likely take a win over Wisconsin and/or Ohio State to receive a big enough bump to be included the AP Top 25.
What’s next: Nebraska faces Northern Illinois on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Memorial Stadium. The game will be broadcast at 12 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
