    Anyone heading to Nebraska?

    I've got tickets to the game and am excited for my first trip to Lincoln. Anyone else going?

    Planning on leaving Ames at 7 a.m. and taking I-80 all the way, is that the best way to go?

    Any other suggestions would be great!

    Re: Anyone heading to Nebraska?

    FG and I are going with 3 other people, and meeting up with a friend of mine from work who goes to NU. Probably going to do the same thing as you, leave early in the morning since it's a 1:30 game. If it was at 11, we probably would go over the night before.

    And I think "Go West on I-80" are the only set of directions you need.

    Re: Anyone heading to Nebraska?

    Lot of people tailgate on top of downtown buildings. On 10th street south of stadium there is a parking garage in between Holiday Inn and Embassy Suites. They have sold several permits to people, but it never fills at the blue sky top on the 7th floor. If you get to the garage 4 hours ahead, you can get in for $18. Now you say what is the advantage. You are 4 blocks from the game and you can easily watch their big scoreboard and watch the game and use the car radio. Good place for those people who do not have tickets. Band usually plays before the game at Embassy Suites and you can watch from the top of the garage.

    Tickets being sold by panhandlers are available and usually get cheaper closer to game time.

    Coming to the game on Interstate and then 27th is best. O St also comes in as a highway from the east also.

    Check out the haymarket area at night. Some good bars there. Bruskies and Lazlos to name a couple. Four of us I Staters will be there.

    Re: Anyone heading to Nebraska?

    I'm still waiting to hear from a friend at NU if she found a student ticket for me or not. I hope so!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Watch out for their big student Red Power flag that they drag over the head of the students. JP needs to order one up for our Clone STUDENT fan section: Cyclone power.

    I along with three other Cyclone fans (and ISU students) will be making the trek to Lincoln for the game. We have pretty good seats as they are from an Nebraska employer...little did they know they would be seating 4 ISU fans in gold!

    Re: Anyone heading to Nebraska?

    Three of us are going and the 4th is the husband of the gal we got our tickets through. Plus 2 others coming along for the fun. Although not sure the RV is coming. Right now our best option is paying $75 to park it by the baseball stadium and that is a pretty steep price to pay for a few hours of tailgating not to mention all the gas we'd put in it to get there and back.

    Re: Anyone heading to Nebraska?

    My girlfriend, my friend from Lincoln and his dad, and I are going. His dad used to do play-by-play radio broadcasts for the local radio station in Lincoln, so it will be interesting to see his take on the Huskers.

    We are leaving as soon as work gets out on Friday and then staying until Sunday. I think his dad is going to bring his camper and we are tailgating after the game for a few hours and watching some more games.

    Anyone heading to Lincoln Saturday?

    My buddy and I scored two awesome seats for Saturday's game, 38 rows from the field on the 45 yard line (Section 7). I have never been to Memorial Stadium so I am really excited to experience the college football environment in Lincoln. I just hope STATE can shock the Bugeaters and their faithful.
