Nebraska fans are encouraged to meet the Huskers before the start of practice on Wednesday, Aug. 3 at Nebraska Football Fan Day presented by U.S. Cellular.
This year’s Fan Day will once again be held in the evening with the event scheduled at Memorial Stadium, beginning at 6 p.m. The event will expand by 30 minutes and last a full two hours this year.
Fan Day is annually the best opportunity for fans to meet and greet the Nebraska football players, coaches and staff before preseason practice begins the following day on Thursday, Aug. 4.
In addition to Fan Day being 30 minutes longer this year, Nebraska fans will be able to enter Memorial Stadium through four gates this year, rather than two in previous years. Fans may enter Memorial Stadium through Gates 3 (SW), 11 (NW), 15 (NE) and 24 (SE), with gates opening at 6 p.m.
The majority of players and coaches will be seated at various locations on the field, with true freshmen located in the stands in the West Stadium.
Defensive position groups will primarily be seated along the West sideline, receivers, offensive line and specialists on the East sideline and quarterbacks and running backs in the North end zone. Assistant coaches will be seated with their respective position groups. A more detailed map will be available on Huskers.com soon.
During Fan Day, Nebraska will honor Sam Foltz with a short moment of silence and video tribute.
