Nebraska Rises to No. 4 Nationally

By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska rifle team moved up six spots to No. 4 nationally in the latest Collegiate Rifle Coaches' Association (CRCA) rankings, released Oct. 8. The Huskers (2-0, 1-0 GARC) went undefeated over the weekend, logging wins over then-No. 18 North Carolina State and then-No. 4 Alaska-Fairbanks.

GARC competitor West Virginia came in at No. 1 this week in the poll, with TCU and Jacksonville State appearing at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. The Huskers took the No. 4 spot, and Alaska-Fairbanks rounded out the top five. Other GARC teams appearing in the poll included  Army (No. 6), Ole Miss (No. 7), Memphis (No. 10) and NC State (No. 11).

The CRCA Top 20 poll is released weekly, with fall rankings based on each team's most recent competition score. Teams that have been idle in competition thus far are not included in the rankings.
