Nebraska improved to 6-0 on Saturday, beating Indiana in Bloomington, Ind.

Coming into the weekend, the then-No. 10 Nebraska squad was believed by many to be somewhat overrated. ESPN college football analyst Desmond Howard called the Huskers one of the most-overrated teams in the country and "Nebraska isn't the 10th best team in the country" was a popular sentiment on Twitter all week.

Nebraska beat Indiana, a very formidable opponent, 27-22, on Saturday night.

The Huskers are now the No. 8 team in the country, and while they still might - in some peoples' minds - be overrated, they're playing well and deserve respect.

ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit gave it to them on Twitter early Sunday morning.

Nebraska will likely improve to 7-0 next weekend, when they host Purdue.

The undefeated Huskers are set to play at No. 10 Wisconsin the following Saturday.
