Monday, September 26, 2016 Weather Doesn't Stop Husker Watch Party
Students and parents gathered to watch the Huskers defeat Northwestern on Sat., Sept. 24 for the Husker Watch Party. The event, which was first scheduled to take place at Memorial Stadium, was moved to the Nebraska Union due to rain. A highly anticipated Campus NightLife event, this year's watch party was co-sponsored by the UNL Parents Association as part of Family Weekend.
“I was looking forward to being in the stadium,” said Julie Weisbecker, who was visiting daughter Sarah for Family Weekend. “But this is a nice alternative.”
Multiple groups huddled around TVs near the Caffina Cafe to watch the game. There was no shortage of good food; hot dogs, veggie burgers, Pepsi products, chips and cookies were served by Campus NightLife staff.
Sophomore Mohammed Hussain brought a positive perspective to the change in venue. “I think it’s really cool that the game was moved to the union because it’s a good place for hanging out,” said Hussain. “People can see all that the university does for students on the weekend.”
Although the rain changed plans, it proved how true Husker fans stick together in all kinds of weather to cheer the team on to victory.
