Nebraska is No. 10 in the AP Poll, but are the Cornhuskers for real? The College GameDay staff weighed in.

Nebraska is sitting in the No. 10 spot in this week's AP Poll, but the Cornhuskers only real "quality win" came at home against a lackluster Oregon team on Sept. 17.

Here are the members of ESPN's College GameDay staff giving their opinions on whether or not the Cornhuskers are "for real" or not:

Desmond Howard says that he could name 10 teams that are better than Nebraska right now. "Bear," GameDay's stats guru, keeps it simple and says that the Cornhuskers are No. 10 in the country because they've beaten everyone they've played. He also poses the question that if Nebraska played Alabama and Florida State, would it be unbeaten?

Kirk Herbstreit says that Nebraska has looked great so far, which is an answer that kind of dodges the actual question.

Nebraska takes on Indiana in Bloomington this afternoon with the kickoff set for 3:30 p.m. EST.
