Nebraska isn’t just a fly-over state – it’s the Heartland’s hidden gem! In most places around the world, people may find it a bit strange if someone on the street or at the store strikes up a conversation with them while they’re going about their daily business. In Nebraska this isn’t the case! The epitome of Midwestern friendliness, a Nebraskan can walk into a room and instantly become friends with everyone. Nebraska Cornhuskers football is basically a state religion. On game day, Memorial Stadium in Lincoln becomes the third largest city in Nebraska with over 90,000 cheering fans. The Cornhuskers have been one of the most dedicated fan bases for over half a century and it should come as no surprise a baby Cornhusker’s first words are usually “Go Big Red!”
