NEBRASKA GAME DAY
NEBRASKA GAME DAY
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 redclad fans look on. 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.
The Huskers enter Memorial
Stadium through the famous
“Tunnel Walk” which has taken
them from their locker room, past
the horseshoe, down the tunnel,
along a red-brick road marking
national championships of the
past and finally onto the field in
front of 80,000 screaming fans.
HERBIE HUSKER
“ Of all the fans in America,
Nebraska’s are the most in-tune
with college football, and they
have the most respect for the way
a college football game should be
played.”
Lee Corso
