Nebraska Football: Huskers Ranked 20th Both The Coaches & AP Polls

Welcome back to a Top 25, Nebraska.

NCAA Football: Oregon at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time since December 2014, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are ranked in a major poll.

The Huskers have been ranked 20th by the Amway Coaches Poll on Sunday after their 35-32 victory over the Oregon Ducks. This marks the first time that Nebraska has been ranked in a Top 25 poll since Mike Riley took over the program.

This is also the first time the Huskers have been ranked since December 2014, when they were ranked 25th and took on USC in the Holiday Bowl, the first game after the dismissal of Bo Pelini as head coach. The Huskers lost to the Trojans 45-42 in that game, where the Trojans themselves were ranked 25th.

Iowa dropped to 25th after their loss to North Dakota State yesterday. The Oregon Ducks are not ranked today after their loss to Nebraska. There are a total of 6 teams from the Big Ten in the poll.

The Huskers are also ranked 20th by the Associated Press today. Iowa and Oregon fell out of the writers poll.
