The Pavilion, which offers fun with family-friendly entertainment, generally opens three hours prior to kick-off.
The Pavilion is an area of fun for the whole family with inflatables, face painting and other family-friendly options. Kick-off time for Nebraska's game with Minnesota is set for 11 a.m. with live television coverage on ESPNews.
Husker Nation Pavilion Highlights
Fun & Inflatables - The Husker Nation Pavilion features games for kids of all ages, including inflatable games (weather permitting), including an obstacle course and a bounce house with a slide. The Kids Zone also features Quarterback Toss, Corn Hole and the Hoops HotShot.
Unity Walk - Husker fans are encouraged to line the path of the Nebraska football team's Unity Walk. The team expects to arrive on the East side of Memorial Stadium, directly in front of the entrance to Nebraska's East Stadium. The team's arrival is expected two hours before kickoff, or at approximately 9 a.m. for Saturday's game against Maryland. Fans are encouraged to line the walkway, along with members of the Husker Spirit Squad and Nebraska band members, as the Huskers enter East Stadium through Gate 20.
Food Vendors - A food vending area will be located in the East Plaza. Face painters and balloon twisters will also be on hand.
Nebraska Team Store - Nebraska's official team store is located in East Stadium with satellite store open for fans on the East side of the Pavilion.

The game will be carried live on the big screen at the Ed Weir Track and Field Stadium. Throughout the day, the video board will show other games of interest from around the country. Since the Husker Nation Pavilion is closed for the Maryland game the video board will not be available to fans.
