Members of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln ROTC color guard carry flags onto the field wearing authentic World War I uniforms as part of a Veterans Day observance in 2018. The Huskers will hold national anthem tryouts for the 2019-20 academic year on Aug. 14.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s athletic marketing department is hosting national anthem tryouts for individual singers, groups and instrumental ensembles from 4 to 7 p.m. Aug. 14 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Individuals or groups interested in trying out must register online by 4 p.m. Aug. 12.

Each performance is limited to 90 seconds or less, and those selected will have a chance to perform at a variety of sporting events — including men's and women's basketball, baseball, bowling, soccer, softball, track and field, wrestling and gymnastics.
