The Nebraska men’s track and field team is ranked fifth in this week’s U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division I poll.
The Huskers moved up two spots from last week into the fifth spot with 73.12 points. Arkansas is ranked No. 1, while Florida is second, Texas A&M is third and Texas Tech is fourth, while Oklahoma State, Penn State, Texas, Indiana and Wisconsin round out the rest of the top 10. Five Big Ten men’s teams are ranked in the top 15 nationally, with four in the top 10.
The National Computer Team Rankings project how a team will finish in a National Championship Meet setting, rather than a triangular or dual. The rankings are compiled from meet data in the 2012-13 season. The next round of computer rankings will be released February 26. The 2013 NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships will be held in Fayetteville, Ark., March 8-9.
