The Nebraska men’s track and field team took over the No. 1 spot in the Track & Field News Dual Meet Rankings released this week.
After winning the team title at the Pac-12 vs. Big Ten Invitational, the Huskers passed Indiana and Texas Tech for the top spot in the initial outdoor rankings. The Huskers went 6-0 in two home quadrangulars during the indoor season and have two more quads on the outdoor schedule this season. The No. 2 team is Texas Tech, whose lone loss during the indoor season was to Nebraska in Lincoln at the Huskers’ adidas Classic. The two teams meet in a rematch on April 28 in Lubbock, along with Baylor and Wichita State. Texas A&M, Indiana and Air Force round out the top five.
The Husker men have won 17 consecutive dual/tri/quad meets dating back to 2001, the longest streak in the NCAA per DailyRelay.com. In that span, the Huskers have defeated 44 opponents.
