The Huskers will need to be ready for a crowd that is ready for this game. War Memorial Stadium in Laramie obviously isn’t as big as our Memorial Stadium, but offensive line coach Barney Cotton says the offense will still have to deal with noise.
The capacity for that stadium is just over 29,000. Another interesting fact about that field which sits between the Snowy Range of the Rocky Mountains to the West and the Laramie Range to the East. At an elevation of 7,220 feet War Memorial is the highest Division I football stadium in America. For more on the elevation and the kicking game, here’s Sean Callahan.
