    Memorial Stadium

    by traveldave Updated Oct 24, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nebraskans are serious about football, especially when it comes to the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers. This team from Lincoln has consistently been among the top college football teams in the nation, and won the National Championship in 1970, 1971, 1994, 1995, and 1997.

    Games are held in Memorial Stadium on the campus of the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. Originally, the stadium was to memorialize all Nebraskans killed during the First World War. However, since then, it is dedicated to Nebraskans killed in all wars.

    Memorial Stadium was designed by Omaha architect John Latenser. It was completed and dedicated in 1923. Over the years, the stadium has gone through several phases of expansion and renovation. The seating capacity has been increased to the point where it is now 81,067. Plans call for a capacity of over 90,000 by 2013.

    Nebraskans are so serious about the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers that every home game has been sold out since 1962, the current National Collegiate Athletic Association record for consecutive sellouts. Fans who attend games wear red, the team's colors, giving rise to the term "Sea of Red" to describe stands full of the color red.
