The KU football team has now been ranked in 22 of the last 30 AP polls.

Texas (No. 2 AP, No 2 coaches), Oklahoma (12, 12), Oklahoma State (16, 17), Nebraska (19, 18) and Missouri (NR, 25) were the other Big 12 schools that earned national rankings in at least one poll.

Alright Mr. Keegan. Your homework assignment when you discuss your vote... How the heck is Nebraska climbing so fast? Love hang over from the Dr. Tom days??? Not that I have husker envy, it just seems like both KU and N should be more even... Thanks!

Keep jumping Nebraska up 5 notches a week -- will only make for a bigger game by the time it rolls around.

How many weeks till KU starts getting some national media attention... I know that we're ranked in the polls, but no one is talking about us yet. I wonder if they aren't going to start talking about us until we're 6-0 heading into the OU game. That's fine... but of course I'd like to have more to read about KU football that just what's posted on KUSports.com
