Nebraska Finishes 2013 Ranked #25 in Coaches, #26 in AP Polls

David McGee

Nebraska finished the season ranked 25th in the Coaches Poll, and unranked (26th) in the AP Poll. Given the bottom of both polls, the Huskers and Washington Huskies switched places.

Given the way the season turned out, the injuries, and the defensive problems at the beginning, it's a decent surprise. It won't make angry Husker fans any less angry, if anything, it will fuel their fire giving them one more line item with which to compare this team to its predecessors.

The Big Ten ended the season with three teams ranked in the AP - #3 Michigan State, #12 Ohio State, and #22 Wisconsin, and four teams in the coaches poll - #3 Michigan State, #10 (tied) Ohio State, #21 Wisconsin, and #25 Nebraska.
