  Husker Football Fans...
Memorial stadium is the home of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Located on the campus at the University of Nebraska in the modest city of Lincoln,Nebraska it has a reputation of being one of the best places in America to watch a college football game.The atmosphere is electric as the excitement begins to stir many hours before kickoff when the Huskers play. A sea of red is what the dedicated, friendly fans have been dubbed as they fill Memorial stadium to capacity every home game.The hardcore Nebraska fans are why Memorial Stadium is home to the current and ongoing NCAA record for consecutive stadium sellouts, filling every seat in the house,every home game since 1963.As of 2001 that totals over 140 contests in a row thru sleet and snow,rain and no matter the foe. There is no place like Nebraska, home of Nebraska U.
Lincoln Nebraska- Building A Stadium....

In the fall of 1922, a drive for $430,000 in stadium construction funds was undertaken by faculty, students, alumni and friends of  the University of Nebraska.The quota was over subscribed. The Stadium was named Memorial Stadium to honor all Nebraskans who served in the Civil and Spanish American Wars; the 751 Nebraskans who died in World War I, the 3,839 in World War II, the 225 in Korea and the 422 in Vietnam. Construction was completed in a few more than 90 working days and Memorial Stadium was dedicated on Oct. 20,1923 at a Homecoming game in which Nebraska was held to a scoreless tie by Kansas. A salute to those who lost their lives in the line of duty and for whom Memorial Stadium was built to honor.
