Reno, Nev. – For the first time ever, the University of Nevada football team is ranked in both of the national Top 25 polls.
The Wolf Pack entered the rankings at No. 25 in both the Associated Press Top 25 and the USA Today Coaches’ Top 25. This is the first time Nevada has ever been ranked in the USA today poll and it marks the first time since 1948 that Nevada has been in the AP Top 25.
Nevada received 102 points in the USA Today poll and 120 points in the AP Poll.
In the AP Poll, Nevada first appeared on Oct. 4, 1948 at No. 19. The Pack, behind All-American quarterback Stan Heath, rose as high as No. 10 on Oct. 25 before falling out of the poll in mid-November of that year.
