Husker Football: Nebraska Up To No. 19 In AP Poll

It’s official: The Associated Press and coaches disagree slightly on Husker football’s lot in life, at least for the time being. The Nebraska Cornhuskers checked in at No. 19 in the writers’ poll while they sit at No. 18 in the Amway Coaches Poll.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers remain one of four Big Ten teams ranked in both national polls. The Associated Press put Wisconsin at the No. 18 spot following their loss to the now-No. 12 LSU Tigers.

Ohio State slipped to No. 8 from No. 5 after their tussle with Navy and Michigan State was bumped a spot higher to No. 7.

Steve Sipple of the Lincoln Journal Star ranked Nebraska No. 14.

The Omaha World-Herald doesn’t have an AP vote this year, however Sam McKewon would’ve placed the Huskers at No. 15 if offered the opportunity.

Texas A&M made a large leap from No. 21 to No. 10 while its opening week opponent South Carolina plummeted from No. 9 to No. 18.

Most first place votes were understandable with Florida State getting the vast majority (46) and a smattering going to Alabama, Oklahoma and Oregon.

However, the eyebrow-raising ones went to Georgia (2), LSU (1) and the Aggies (2).
