UNL alums travel all over country for tailgate

Even though they are spread out across the country, these dedicated Husker fans have made a point to stay in touch through tailgating.

In fact, in the past 10 years, they have tailgated at every home game — rain, shine or even snow. They travel hundreds of miles — in the air or on the highway — to meet up in a parking lot in Lincoln, Nebraska. Some come as far as Florida and Texas.

Brady Pedersen and his group of friends graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where they all met their future wives.

After graduation, the four couples ended up in different states.

But every fall they have one focused goal in coming back to where it all started: “To see a Husker win,” Petersen said.

The four families eat food, drink beer, blast music and throw the football around for pre-game fun before they go to the game and sit in their club seats, where they join their beloved sea of red.listen

After the game, they go their separate ways, knowing they will be back together at the next home game.
