Pinnacle Bank Arena will host another Nebraska Football "watch party" this Saturday for the 5 p.m. game with Southern Mississippi.

Temperatures are expected to again reach the mid-90s by kickoff.

The arena's Derek Andersen says the first event was a success, drawing more than 3,000 fans.

"They came early, they stayed late," Andersen said. "People had so much fun, we're going to do it again."

The doors will open to the public at 2:00 p.m., kickoff is at 5:00 p.m.

"There isn't a bad seat in the house.  I know it sounds cliche, but when you're watching on those 22-foot wide video boards, it's true," Andersen said.

Parking is available in the Premium (VIP) Garage next to the arena, but it'll cost you $20.  Parking in the Festival Space Lot is $65, but does not include the typical catered food and beverages for tailgating.

Admission is free and the concessions will be open.
