To celebrate Nebraska Football's 50 years of consecutive sellouts from 1962 - 2012, a time capsule will be buried near East Stadium. This time capsule will include items from both the university and athletic department and will commemorate the current sellout streak. It will not be opened until the Fall of 2062 when Nebraska Football is celebrating 100 years of consecutive sellouts.
This feat of 50 years of consecutive sellouts is one of the reasons why Nebraska has the "Greatest Fans In College Football" and we want to make sure that these fans that helped achieve this feat can participate in the time capsule. Below are the numbers of ways fans can participate.
1. For our younger fans, we have created a work sheet full of guessing and drawing games that can be printed off at this link (PDF). Individuals or school classrooms can print this off and have their young Husker fans fill them out and then send them to us at the address below. Also, pending their approval...parents or teachers can choose to send either individual photos or a classroom photo to include with the sheets that will go in the time capsules.
2. Fans of all ages can send us any notes, photos, memories, stories, and the like to the address below to include in the time capsule. These items can deal with anything from their first Husker experience, greatest Husker memory, or their hopes and thoughts for future of the Nebraska Football program over the next 50 years.
3. For our more tech savy Husker fans, we'll be collecting and curating tweets on Twitter with the hashtag #Huskers2062. Once again, this tweets can include memories or experiences and all fans have to do is tweet with #Huskers2062 to be included in the time caspule.
Fans will have the options to fill-out any of the Husker Kid Activity sheets or drop off any notes, photos, memories, or stories in person at the Husker Nation Pavilion that takes place before the Red/White Spring Game this Saturday, April 6 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Details of the burial of the time capsule are still pending; however, to ensure inclusion of items, fans are encouraged to get them to the Nebraska Athletic Department no later than Friday, April 12.
Fans can send their items to:
