Preseason College FB Coaches Poll

USA Today's Coaches College football poll was released this morning, with Husker opponent USC ranked as the consensus #1 with 45 first place votes. SE Conference rivals LSU and Florida were ranked 2nd and 3rd. Another Husker opponent from the Big 12 South, Texas, is rated 4th, with Michigan, West Virginia, Wisconsin, last year's Big 12 Cahmp Oklahoma, Virginia Tech and Ohio State rounding out the top 10.

Huskers are ranked 19th, with another Big 12 school, Texas A&M, rated 25th. NU hosts USC in Lincoln on Septmeber 15th, and travel to Austin to face off against UT a month later on Oct. 20th. They do not face either OU or A&M unless they were to meet in the Big 12 Championship. At this point the only announced TV games (according to Husker Extra) are USC and the season finale against CU Nov. 23rd, both on ABC.

LATE ADD: Apparently the season opener on Sept. 1st against Nevada is also on ABC regional coverage at 2:30 Central, and the game at Wake Forest the following week will be on ESPN bright and early at 11 AM.
