A Lincoln native has put together a documentary that gives everyone visual proof of what Nebraska football really means to its fans.

It has Husker pride, which we see every day in Nebraska.

"I've been to other football games but there's not many like Nebraska football," Husker fan Ethan Hopp said.

That's why Ryan Tweedy created "Through These Gates".

"Our documentary is about the idea that Husker, to be a Cornhusker, is bigger than football. It's the idea of something other than the game," he said.

Some say the excitement of the game makes Nebraska football so popular.

"The huge crowd, ton of people the atmosphere was fantastic, everyone was having a good time," Mark Marsik said.

And for many fans, being a Cornhusker is a way of life.

"It's everybody, it's the old people to the young people, just everybody's in the game," Marsik said.

Which Tweedy, who now lives in Los Angeles, says is what being a Nebraskan is all about.

"It's sort of like saying this is our piece of the world and we're so proud of it this like the one thing we're just going to scream from the roof tops and it just happens to be Go Big Red," he said.

 "Through These Gates" will be shown all around the state of Nebraska at the end of the month.
