In case you missed it, No. 7 Nebraska walked into its matchup against No. 11 Wisconsin unbeaten at 7-0.

By the time the game was over, the Cornhuskers were 7-1.

The contest was more than just a close one, as it took Wisconsin an overtime period to defeat Nebraska at home, 23-17. Losing to the No. 11 team in the country in overtime on the road can’t hurt your ranking too severely, can it?

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit took to Twitter late last night (early this morning) to discuss his thoughts on the Huskers.

The Cornhuskers showed resiliency in its biggest game of the season last night, and with that, shouldn’t slide down in the polls very far.
