The Nebraska Alumni Association’s Football Fridays are moving to Lincoln’s new entertainment district in the historic Haymarket. The event series will take place at the Railyard, southeast of Pinnacle Bank Arena, at 5 p.m. on the day before each Nebraska home football game (except the Iowa game).
The first of seven fall events is Aug. 30. A panel of Husker experts including Husker legend Tommie Frazier, Husker Sports Network’s Matt Davison, and local media will preview Nebraska’s season opener and answer fans’ questions. Greg Sharpe of the Husker Sports Network will serve as emcee.
The family-friendly events will include children’s games and a brief performance by the Husker Spirit Squad and pep band.
Football Friday is free and open to the public.
Events are also planned for Sept. 6, Sept. 13, Sept. 20, Oct. 4, Nov. 1 and Nov. 15. For more information, go to http://huskeralum.org/football-fridays.
