Nicknamed the Sea of Red and located on the campus of the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Memorial Stadium is home to the Cornhuskers college football team. The first game ever to be played at Memorial was on October 13, 1923, when Nebraska scored a decisive victory over Oklahoma with a final score of 24-0. Declared one of the "Cathedrals of College Football" by The Sporting News, Memorial Stadium is one of the most high-tech stadiums in the country. It was the first college stadium in the country to show instant replays on a large screen. Since 1968, Memorial Stadium has sold out more than 368 consecutive games, which is an NCAA record. The University of Nebraska makes sure its football players know they are valued, and this is reflected in the locker room and other facilities. Maybe that's part of the formula for the team winning five national championships. Other events hosted here include the Kansas Shrine Bowl, the Lincoln Marathon and university softball games. You can grab Memorial Stadium Nebraska tickets to see the Cornhuskers in action at StubHub.
