To the surprise of no one, the Nebraska Cornhuskers were in the "receiving votes" part of the first Associated Press Poll for the 2015 Football season.
The Huskers, who have a new Head Coach in Mike Riley, were unranked last year after their final game, a 45-42 loss to the Southern Cal Trojans.
The poll is topped by the defending National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes. TCU is second, with Alabama third.
Here is the full poll:
