Nebraska football enters the 2017 season unranked but picked up four votes in the inaugural Associated Press rankings, released Monday.
What it means: Nebraska being unranked in the AP poll isn’t a big surprise. The Huskers received 23 votes in the USA Today Coaches poll, which put the team at No. 36 overall. It’s not a great spot to be in, but it’s not the worst either. Nebraska was also unranked to start the 2016 season, and entered the top 25 at No. 20 after going 3-0 to start the season.
If the Huskers get through non-conference play in similar fashion this season, they’ll likely break into the top 25 at roughly the same point.
What’s next: Nebraska opens its season on Saturday, Sept. 2, against Arkansas State. The game will be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.
