Nebraska Football Fan Day underway

Posted By: KLKN Newsroom

The 2016 Nebraska Football Fan Day will be Wednesday, August 3rd, from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The event – which was extended an extra 30 minutes this year – is open for fans to meet and talk with Husker football coaches and players.

There will be a moment of silence and a video tribute in honor of former Husker punter Sam Foltz, who was recently killed in a car crash.

The team will be signing autographs. Fans are asked to limit autograph requests to one autograph per player or coach.

Also, any fan wanting a piece of clothing (shirt, hat, jersey, etc.) signed should have that article of clothing in their hand as opposed to wearing it. This is to allow traffic to flow smoothly and to accommodate as many fans as possible.

Defensive players will primarily be located along the west sideline. Offensive linemen, receivers and specialists will be along the east sideline. Quarterbacks and running backs will be located in the north end zone.

Free parking is available in the Champion’s Club lot, the 14th and Avery parking garage, and Lot 5 (located northeast of Memorial Stadium).

Fans can enter and exit the stadium through Gate 3 (southwest corner), Gate 11 (northwest corner), Gate 15 (northeast corner), and Gate 24 (southeast corner).
