Football - Game Day

Chris Fowler - ESPN
“When you walk in here, you see nothing but red. I can’t recall walking into another stadium and seeing such an amazing, monochromatic scene and so much loyalty. When they’re stirred up when Nebraska is challenged — that’s when this crowd can become one of the most intimidating in college football.” - Chris Fowler, ESPN

Game days at Nebraska are unlike any in college football. Fans line the streets of Lincoln waiting to enter the “Sea of Red,” while the marching band parades up Stadium Drive as thousands of red-clad fans look on. The “Third-Largest City” in Nebraska on game days, Memorial Stadium has been sold out for every game since 1962—an incredible streak of more than 325 games and counting.

The Huskers emerge from the famous “Tunnel Walk” to the sound of “Sirius” and the fans stay at a frenzied pitch until the final play of the game when they graciously cheer for the opposing players as they exit the field.

For as long as anyone can remember, the Huskers have touched a lucky horseshoe on their way from the locker room to the field. The horseshoe hangs above the door as Nebraska leaves the North Stadium.
