I think Nebraska fans are the greatest fans in college football, no question in my mind. The enthusiasm here is as good as any place, but the integrity here of the fans is the best in America.Lee Corso, ESPN College Football Analyst
Nebraska football fans are perhaps the most loyal in college football. An entire state follows the Huskers, along with an ever-growing national fan base, packing memorial Stadium or every game since 1962. On Sept. 26, 2009, Nebraska fans added another chapter to their rich history by celebrating the 300th consecutive sellout of Memorial Stadium. The Big Red faithful packed a single-game record 86,304 fans into the historic venue for Nebraska's 55-0 win over Louisiana-Lafayette.
All sports in Nebraska benefit from the loyal fan-base from the intimidating confines of the Coliseum in volleyball and wrestling to the grandeur of Hawks Field and Bowlin Stadium at Haymarket Park for baseball and softball.
