Memorial Stadium in Lincoln! Nebraska's Tunnel Walk is one of the greatest pregame traditions(non tailgate related) in college football, although to be honest it isn't as amazing as it used to be since they tried to change it during the callahan era....

Is there really any question? Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska!

How many straight sell-outs do you need? I can imagine this streak lasting longer than I live, and I hope it does! No disrespect to any other team or any other stadium, some are truly great, but Nebraska has the greatest stadium, and some of the classiest fans in the nation. I am from Omaha, but grew up in Manhattan, KS. This was during the 80's and I can remember a sea of Red in Manhattan. Nebraska fans can turn an away game into a home game! Atmosphere...hands down, Nebraska Fans, and Memorial Stadium!!!


Go Big Red!

Where is Nebraska at all? They have more home losses since the beginning of last than the gators have in the past 6 years. When coming to Florida the road team endures killer humidity and 90,000+ insane fans. The way the stadium is built the sound doesn't escape the building. That mixed with a top 10 capacity stadium makes it one of if not the loudest stadiums in college football. Again I love when people say FACT. after saying something, even though this isn't about a bowl game at a neutral site. This is about how your Home Stadium is better than everyone else's. Also, this isn't about wether your team will travel to other stadiums. The Gators proudly defend their home stadium, and here is a FACT for you, since 2005 the Gators are 5-0 while facing ranked opponents at THE SWAMP, while Nebraska is 1-4 during that time.
