The Huskers go down in the polls for the first time all season

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

With the overtime loss to the Wisconsin Badgers last night, the Nebraska Cornhuskers made their first drop of the season.

The Huskers are now ranked 10th by the USA Today/Amway Coaches poll. The Badgers rose to 8th after the victory.

Nebraska heads to Columbus, Ohio next week to take on the 6th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes, who defeated Northwestern this past weekend by the score of 24-20.

We’ll have the Associated Press poll when it drops later this afternoon.
