Kirk Herbstreit remains high on Nebraska.

Despite Nebraska's loss to Wisconsin on Saturday night - the Huskers' first loss of the 2016 season - ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit remains high on Mike Riley's squad.

Nebraska, which fell to the Badgers in overtime at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisc., will surely drop in the polls as a result of this loss, but Herbstreit doesn't think they should fall too far.

Nebraska will drop, but probably not too far. The Huskers will probably come it at No. 9 or No. 10 in the new polls, which are set to be released this afternoon.
