Ohio State and Georgia top the rankings as one and two. Nebraska is rated 48th.
Here are Nebraska's schedule followed by their preseason ranking:
Western Michigan (85) HOME
San Jose St. (82) HOME
New Mexico St. (108) HOME
Virginia Tech (17) HOME
Missouri (8) HOME
Texas Tech (10) AWAY
Iowa St. (63) AWAY
Baylor (95) HOME
Oklahoma (3) AWAY
Kansas (13) HOME
Kansas State (57) AWAY
Colorado (41) HOME
The good news is Nebraska has eight home games. The improving Iowa St. team will be no gimme. Kansas St will be tough away. Texas Tech and Oklahoma are rated in the Top 10 and we play them in their venues. Baylor has nine offensive players back and six defensive players.
Other interesting rankings are Arizona (51), Indiana (52), Mayland (53), Washington St. (54), Purdue (56), Louisville (59), and North Carolina (60). Kansas St. and Iowa St. are rated with this group. The line at Iowa St. may be even today. Kansas State could be even also looking at the present rankings and the fact that we play them in Manhattan.
2008 will be a very competitive year with Nebraska's season record depending on how well we play the close games. Looks like we will have a bunch of them next season.
Kansas defensive coordinator Bill Young is leaving and has taken the same position with the University of Miami.
