Nebrasketball: Huskers Drop in Associated Press and Coaches Polls

It was fun while it lasted

NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

And that was it.

After two losses to conference foes Maryland and Iowa the Huskers have found themselves no longer in the Associated Press or Coaches Top 25. Nebraska is still getting votes in both polls but I doubt they will jump back in the rankings in the next couple of weeks.

As for the NET ranking which the NCAA is using this year, they are currently sitting at #15 in the nation. The NET ranking has replaced the RPI for the NCAA Tournament.

Nebraska wasn’t the only Big Ten team that dropped either. Wisconsin is also no longer ranked in either poll after a loss to Minnesota and a win against Penn State.

Ranked Teams in the Big Ten

  • Michigan - #2 AP & #4 Coaches
  • Michigan State - #6 AP & #5 Coaches
  • Ohio State - #16 AP & #17 Coaches
  • Indiana - #22 AP & #24 Coaches
  • Iowa #25 Coaches

Other Husker Opponents

  • Texas Tech - #8 AP & Coaches

The Huskers come back to Pinnacle Bank Arena to take on Penn State this Thursday at 8:00 pm CST.
