Husker Fans Pack Memorial Stadium For Spring Game

Husker football made a spring comeback, at least for one day.

Saturday was the annual "Red-White Spring Game."

It drew a around 62,000 fans to Lincoln, and a lot of tail-gaters full of Husker fever.

On the warm spring day, Husker football fans swarmed the stadium.

Hundreds and hundreds set up shop in parking lots, and got burgers and hot dogs going on the grill.

Many couldn't wait to see the preview for the fall season.

"With the whole offense/defense thing, I think we'll have a better chance to see like good versus good," said Nate Dickes, one Husker fan.

The party went on for hours outside the stadium before the game even started.

Former Huskers signed autographs, fans played games, and ate a lot of great food.

For some fans, tail-gating wasn't just about getting excited for football, but also, spending time with loved ones.

Greg Hanson and his gang brought their own Husker bus. "Everybody starts talking about football, Some of it is we haven't seen some of our friends since last fall, so everybody starts to get together," he said.

Tickets to the spring football game also gave fans the chance to check out the Husker track, field, and softball teams on Saturday.
