Nebraska has fallen out of The Associated Press Top 25 for the first time in three years after losing to UCLA Saturday night. The Huskers dropped from 14th to 24th place in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
NU allowed 653 yards in the 36-30 loss in Pasadena. In 124 seasons, only the 1956 Oklahoma Sooners totaled more offense against the Huskers.
Head coach Bo Pelini emphasized after the UCLA loss that his team's main goal of returning to the Rose Bowl as Big Ten champion remains intact.
Nebraska (1-1) returns home to face Arkansas State (1-1) this Saturday.
Arkansas has taken the second-largest fall out of the AP poll, dropping from eighth to unranked after losing to Louisiana-Monroe. The Razorbacks were upset 34-31 in overtime after losing quarterback Tyler Wilson to an injury. The only team to take a more drastic fall from the poll was Michigan in 2007. The Wolverines opened the season at No. 5 and dropped out after a week one loss to Appalachian State.
Alabama remains No. 1. Southern California is No. 2, followed by LSU and Oregon. Florida State moved into a tie for fifth with Oklahoma and Georgia is No. 7.
Arkansas was one of four teams to drop out after losses, along with Nebraska, Wisconsin and Oklahoma State. Moving in were UCLA, Tennessee, Arizona and BYU.
