Huskers Grab Top Spot in December Poll

By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska bowling team has secured the top spot in the nation in the latest National Tenpin Coaches Association poll, released Wednesday. 

The Huskers, who are 33-5 in head-to-head matches this season, received 36 out of a possible 38 first-place votes. After starting the season in the No. 2 spot the Huskers have earned their way to the top, after winning two of their three tournaments so far this season. 

McKendree, which had been ranked No. 1 in the preseason poll, fell to the number two spot, and received one first-place vote. Arkansas State and Vanderbilt maintain the third- and fourth-place spots, respectively. Sam Houston State also remained in fifth place and received one first-place vote. 

The Huskers will return to competition following winter break, Jan. 12-14, at the Mid-Winter Classic in Jonesbroro, Ark.
