Memorial Stadium: Lincoln, NE

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have sold out every home game since 1962, an ever-growing NCAA record of more than 300 consecutive full houses. It’s now roughly 3.2 million people—twice as many as currently live in the Prairie State. Erected in 1922 to honor Nebraska vets who fought in World War I, the Spanish American War, and the Civil War, the stadium is awash in red on game days as fans flood the stadium to cheer on their beloved Huskers and watch replays on one of the largest jumbotrons in college football.

Team Tradition: The dramatic “Tunnel Walk” and charging onto the field across the Big Red Carpet.

Typical Chant: Hus-ker Pow-er!

Biggest Rival: Oklahoma.

Postgame Hangout: The Single Barrel.

Stadium Capacity: Approximately 85,000; huskers.com.
