Memorial Stadium, nicknamed The Sea of Red, is an American football stadium located on the campus of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in Lincoln, Nebraska. The stadium primarily serves as the home venue for the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team and a variety of other university and state activities.

Memorial Stadium was built in 1923 at a cost of $450,000 with a capacity of 31,080 to replace Nebraska Field, where the Cornhuskers played home games from 1909 to 1922. The first game at the new stadium was a 24–0 Nebraska victory over Oklahoma on October 13, 1923.
A series of expansions raised the stadium's capacity to 85,458, but attendance numbers regularly exceed 90,000. Nebraska has sold out an NCAA-record 382 consecutive games at Memorial Stadium, a streak that dates back to 1962. When full, Memorial Stadium famously holds more people than the population of Nebraska's third-largest city, Bellevue.

  • I love the attitude at the stadium. Everyone is so proud of their Nebraska Cornhusker Football! They keep the crowd involved in the game especially when we get a touchdown. The red balloons float...

  • Garth Brooks sound check August 13th 2021 it was excellent. It was done for the students and staff of University of Nebraska. The day before the concert. He also added that all proceeds would be matched by him toward the students. He is such a great person and has a heart of gold.
