For the first time since 2016, Nebraska is in the AP Top 25.

The preseason Associated Press poll was released Monday morning and the Huskers checked in at No. 24.

The Huskers joined six other Big Ten teams in the preseason poll, which was topped by Ohio State at No. 5. Michigan came in at No. 7, Penn State at No. 15, Michigan State at No. 18, Wisconsin at No. 19 and Iowa at No. 20.

The last time Nebraska appeared in a preseason poll — Associated Press or Coaches— was in 2014 when it opened at No. 22 in both. Nebraska just missed out on the preseason Coaches Poll, released on Aug. 1, but received the most votes of any team outside the top 25. Head coach Scott Frost, who has a vote in the poll, did not include the Huskers in his ballot.

Nebraska’s entry into the AP top 25 marks the first time overall since Week 15 of the 2016 season, a run of 33 consecutive polls without the Huskers.

Head Coach Scott Frost spoke with the media after practice and touched on the development of the team and where it is headed.

Frost started off by speaking about some of the scholarships he's awarded to walk-ons.

"We gave one away today." Frost said. "I think on our team the way the roster sits with our 85 (scholarships) we probably have three to give. We're still trying to decide on a couple of them, but we put Trent Hixson on scholarship today. The team was fired up for him, so he'll be on scholarship."

Frost said the ability to award scholarships to walk-on players is a great way to recognize the contributions walk-ons make to the program.

>>Nebraska unveiled a Blackshirts-inspired uniform earlier this week, but unlike previous alternates this one isn't going to be a one-game special.

"Honestly, I've been thinking about this a long time, way before I was the coach at Nebraska," Frost said. "I've seen a lot of alternate uniforms at Nebraska, but I haven't seen one specifically for the Blackshirts.

"I think I can spill the beans, I think by next year hopefully we have a home and away version of this. Down the road I'd like to see it be a tradition that if the defense has a great game and holds an opponent under so many points then they earn the right to wear Blackshirts the next week. I think that would be another source of pride for our defense. We probably won't start that this year. I just want to get the uniforms broken in and make sure the kids like them, but I'd like to see that happen next year."

So the team uniform would be red and white, but the defensive players would wear black and white?

that would be cool, but I think the entire team wears black if the defense posts a shutout the previous game

Nebraska senior defensive back is the latest Husker walk-on to earn a scholarship, Nebraska head coach Scott Frost announced Monday.

The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Stovall played his high school football at Omaha Creighton Prep and has become a standout on special teams. Stovall was Nebraska’s special teams player of the year in 2018, and has four tackles in 2019.

Stovall has appeared in 23 games during his Husker career, making five starts. He has made 16 total tackles during his career and recovered a fumble during his Husker career.
