Nebraska Football Game Preview
When: November 5th, 2011
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.
