Nebraska Football Game Preview

When: November 5th, 2011

What: The Nebraska Cornhuskers, currently ranked 10th in the BCS poll, take on the Northwestern Wildcats in a conference game during Nebraska’s first year in the Big Ten Conference.

Where: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, Nebraska. The stadium holds an ongoing NCAA record of 316 consecutive sellouts, which began in 1962. When full, Memorial Stadium holds more people than any Nebraska city except Omaha and Lincoln. Because most fans wear red apparel, the stadium is referred to as the “Sea of Red” on game days.

Why: Not only a chance for two Michigan grads to see the new kid on the block, but also because this is clearly the highlight of any trip to Nebraska. The program has established itself as a traditional powerhouse, and has the fourth-most all-time victories of any NCAA Division I-A  team. Nebraska is one of only six football programs in NCAA Division I-A history to win 800 or more games. We’re excited for another college football experience, although we don’t know if either of us will be able to wear any red.

    Welcome to Nebraska! Yes, I understand you hesitency to wear Red since you two are obviously fans of the Blue and Maise. No worries, once you get a look at the Red Sea of the West, you’ll realize, “there is no place like Nebraska.” I hope you’ve gotten to taken the campus life and the culture of Lincoln. It’s a great college town with lots of things to do and places to visit. THe nightlife is vibrant and game day…. game day is something to just get absorbed in and let the spirit of college football wash over you. I hope you enjoy yourselves and maybe you’ll be there in Ann Arbor in two weeks to see the Wolverines take on the newbie, keep in mind though. The Huskers are also looking for their first Rose Bowl as part of the Big Ten, but we know the road to the Rose goes through Michigan… GO BIG RED!
