Nebraska football fans saw the BCS era come to a close in 2013, just as they began to focus on NU’s recruiting class for the upcoming season. In the BCS era (1998-2013), Nebraska saw three head coaches and one BCS title game appearance.
So as we bid adieu to the BCS and gear up for national signing day 2014, let’s take a look back and power rank Nebraska’s recruiting classes in the BCS era, from No. 16 all the way to No. 1. In compiling this list, we will be looking at actual on-field accomplishments as opposed to potential, which will, by its nature, drive down the ratings of the classes with players still building their careers. Fair warning.
