VIDEO: Rain, shine, or snow UNL employees help gameday happen

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Husker’s final scheduled game is today, and in classic Nebraska fashion, Memorial Stadium was encased in fresh snow from an overnight storm.

But, have no fear, Nebraska Event Management is here. Employees and interns with the organization helped make GameDay happen by clearing over the 360 foot-long field of leftover slush.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Sportsturf Managers handled the snowblower, clearing about half the field… until it broke down.

Nebraska Event Management posted on Twitter how they finished the rest. Saying they improvised, finishing the rest of the field “with a Gator and a blade. The other gators were used to take the snow elsewhere after scooping it into the back.”

Interns with Nebraska Event Management could be found at the entry points and parking lots with shovels in hand.

After hours of clearing snow, the field is finally safe a Husker football game. Thank you to Nebraska Event Management for all your hard work!
