LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — It was a long journey, but Husker season is finally here. With that in mind, officials are reminding fans to stop the spread, while changing ‘Go Big Red.’

University of Nebraska- Lincoln (UNL) Chancellor Ronnie Green tweeting out that “COVID-19 will not take a break. Not for a Husker football watch party” asking the community to finish this season strong.

We must remember: COVID-19 will not take a break. Not for a Husker football watch party ignoring recommended health guidelines. Not for a night at a crowded bar. Let’s all stay vigilant and finish our semester on campus strong.

Instead of risking a night out at the bars, the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) recommends ‘homegating’ for Husker games.

‘Homegating’ means cheering on the Cornhuskers at home with people you live with.

LLCHD recently posted ‘Homegating’ guidelines, recommending face masks and hand sanitizer be readily available. They also encourage social distancing, bringing you own food and drink, and not letting the party drag out.
