The Husker Nation Pavilion presented by CenturyLink will be open Friday, Nov. 29 at 8 a.m. (three hours before kickoff) for Nebraska's game against the Iowa Hawkeyes at Memorial Stadium. The Pavilion, located north of Memorial Stadium on the Gass Practice Field, offers fun with family-friendly entertainment for every game.
Activities at the Pavilion will be open to fans from 8 a.m. right up until kickoff at 11 a.m.
While the activities will end when the football game begins, fans are still welcome to watch the game, which is being televised nationally by ABC at the Pavilion live on the big screen.
The nation's premier pregame party, the Husker Nation Pavilion provides free and fun activities for the whole family. The Pavilion features great games and activities for kids.
The Gass FieldTurf practice area is available for kids of all ages to stretch out on before the game. The FieldTurf area is exactly like the FieldTurf inside Memorial Stadium and the nearby Hawks Championship Center, and is one of the fields the Huskers use in their preparations each week.
The Nebraska football team's grass practice field and the track will be closed to fans.
