Nebraska had a big couple of days last weekend.
First, the Cornhuskers beat Indiana, 27-22, in a hard-fought victory on the road in Bloomington. Then, the Huskers got a bump in the AP Poll, moving to No. 8 in the nation.
Now, the 6-0 team is getting praise from ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit.
They look great. Big win on the road. Especially considering the injuries they overcame. Big games and big opportunities ahead. https://t.co/GMsPcspkJs

The ESPN color commentator, asked how he feels about the Husker, responded with vigor.
Herbstreit gave the team credit for winning on the road despite injuries and said there are big games and opportunities ahead.
Those games include back-to-back match-ups with Wisconsin and Ohio State, starting in two weeks.
The comments come after Herbstreit called out Huskers fans on Twitter in late September.
Great win at Northwestern. When was your last meaningful season?!? Shhhh.. When you LOSE say little–When you WIN say less. https://t.co/mIUHIG4ya5

Those comments led to Herbstreit defending himself and Nebraska on Twitter yesterday.
