LINCOLN, Neb. — After a week for voters to think about Nebraska’s 40-10 loss at Iowa last week, Nebraska fell one spot in the Associated Press Top-25 poll but moved up a spot in the Coaches poll.
Nebraska (9-3, 6-3 Big Ten) is now No. 24 in the AP poll, No. 21 in the Coaches’ rankings.
Previous rankings: (Coaches/AP): No. 22/No. 23
New rankings (Coaches/AP): No. 21/No. 24
Last result: A 40-10 loss to Iowa on Nov. 25
What it means: The Huskers’ ranking doesn’t mean too much at this point, considering the College Football Playoff rankings haven’t been released. And Nebraska isn’t ranked in that poll anyway.
But the silver lining? With a bowl win, Nebraska could finish in the top 25 of the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2013.
Up next: Nebraska’s bowl game should be announced later Sunday afternoon.
