Husker enthusiast got their first up close look at the new addition to east stadium, Wednesday night.

Gate 18, at Memorial Stadium, looked like game day as hundreds funneled in to see the state of the art upgrades.

The self led tour took spectators up six flights of escalators for a birds eye view.

Then, a trip downstairs took the curious minds to the club level, which has the same amenities as west stadium club seating.

Next, groups of people went to the Nebraska Athletic Performance Lab.

The research lab will be used for head injury and student athlete performance testing.

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Officials say tours after this will be limited and guided by stadium staff.
