“Lincoln skyline changes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Awesome to be among 90,000 cheering for the Huskers. Honestly, though, it dominates the skyline, along with the new arena. The capitol isn't as big as it used to be.

“Great football venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

If you are a college football fan this is a great place to see a game. The stadium was just enlarged & there were over 91,000 fans watching the home opener. With the extra large video screen it is easy to see the action. As expected the upper level seats are a long way from the field. The Nebraska fans are very nice to the opposing teams. Arrive early to enjoy the different restaurants & sports bars. Many of them have live bands. Their are lots of fans tailgating & it's not uncommon for those tailgaters to invite other fans to join them. It's fun to walk around the outside of the stadium also. Spend the extra 5 bucks for a portable seat cushion with a back. Then you are guaranteed your 19" of seat space as all the seats are a tight fit with little legroom. Arrive to your seats 15 minuets early to see & hear the tunnel walk when the team comes onto the field to start the game.

“Awesome place to see a Football Game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is a fantastic stadium for football! It is hard to not have a good view, even if you are high up. There is a huge big screen to catch all of the action, in case you can't see the field well enough from your seat in row 88 :) Lots of food options available too.

“On game day, its the 3rd biggest city in Nebraska”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The place is great during game day. Of course lots of people. During the off season, there are some displays to enjoy. The stadium is not far (10 min walk?) from the hay market area which has many good restaurants and shops.

“Go Big Red!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Inquire about tours, as it is much more interesting than just going and wondering around on you own. Although any Husker football fan would probably enjoy just being in the stadium it's fun to be able to get out on the field, see the training facilities or sky boxes, and learn about the history of the stadium.
