Welcome to Memorial Stadium
Inscribed on the four corners of the stadium are the following words, written by former UNL professor of philosophy Hartley Burr Alexander: "In Commemoration of the men of Nebraska who served and fell in the Nations Wars. Not the victory but the action; Not the goal but the game; In the deed the glory. Courage; Generosity; Fairness; Honor; In these are the true awards of manly sport. Their Lives they held their countrys trust; They kept its faith; They died its heroes."
The home of the Huskers since 1923 and the location of a continuing NCAA-record consecutive sellout streak that began Nov. 3, 1962, Memorial Stadium provides one of the most exciting game-day experiences in all of college football.

2012 East Stadium Entrance
Due to the construction, we’ve had to adjust how we handle the entry of fans on the east side. Although we are limiting the number of entry locations, we will have a comparable number of entry points as in previous seasons, i.e. ticket takers. Gate 23/24 locations are dedicated for student ticket entry. The other entry points will take all other valid gameday tickets.
• Northeast corner of the stadium outside gate 16
• What will be the future grand entrance – directly outside of the old Gate 20
• Student tent outside gate 23
• Southeast corner of the stadium outside gate 24
Fans can access the express entry lanes when entering the stadium with a jacket and tickets. Small-sized purses and camera bags are also allowed in the stadium, but must be screened in the security check points.
