The Nebraska Cornhuskers Deserve to be Ranked

Good arguments from the Bleacher Report

Of course I’m biased but I do think if Nebraska beats Virginia Tech, or Texas Tech were ranked for sure. Missouri and Oklahoma? Total meltdowns what can I say.

Nebraska is 8-4, so let’s look at the losses first. All rankings are from the latest BCS poll.

Sept. 27, No. 19 Virginia Tech (9-4, ACC champions), 35-30

Oct. 4, No. 21 Missouri (9-4, Big 12 North champions), 52-17

Oct. 11, No. 7 Texas Tech (11-1), 37-31 OT

Nov. 1, No. 1 Oklahoma (12-1, Big 12 champions), 62-28

All teams are ranked in the top-25. All but Texas Tech played for their conference championships. All but Virginia Tech have former or current Heisman trophy candidates leading the offense. Oklahoma is headed to the national championship. Nebraska played Texas Tech tighter than No. 3 Texas did.
