Nebraska Unranked in Preseason AP Poll to Begin 2018-19 Season

October 22, 2018

Nebraska will begin perhaps its most anticipated season ever unranked.

The preseason AP Top 25 came out Monday morning — faulty, one might add; a great start to the season for website coders everywhere — and the Huskers found themselves behind 29 other programs.

Nebraska has only been ranked twice in a preseason poll in program history, but many thought it had a shot this time around. With each of last season's top four scorers returning (guard Glynn Watson Jr., guard James Palmer Jr., forward Isaac Copeland, forward Isaiah Roby) to a team that won 22 games last season, the Huskers are expected to be dancing when the NCAA Tournament rolls around in March.

You can see the full top 25 below:

  1. Kansas
  2. Kentucky
  3. Gonzaga
  4. Duke
  5. Virginia
  6. Tennessee
  7. Nevada
  8. North Carolina
