The experience inside Memorial Stadium on game day is one of the best in college football. Several improvements are only going to enhance the fan experience in Memorial Stadium.
"So what the fans will see when they come here is all the video boards have been replaced,"  Nebraska's Senior Associate A.D. of Marketing and Communications David Witty said. "Starting with the north board, the large board, that's going to be much better resolution going from 20 mm to 10 mm," Witty said. 
The large north video board wasn't the only board that got an upgrade. 
"On the corner boards we replaced all four of the corner boards, the biggest change will be in the north where we have the new wrap around boards," Witty said. "This is key for our fans in the the north end zone who had to look all the way down, about 100 yards to see the board."
The ribbon boards are now full length and another ribbon board was added on the east facade. The updates to the video boards will help keep the fans informed throughout the game. 
"We'll have a lot more stats for the fans there will be more player graphics for the fans, so I think if you come here the overall experience will be much better and more informative as you watch the game," Witty said. 
The fans are encouraged not to bring anything inside the stadium but if they must they have to follow the new rules for bags this season. 
"It's a 12x12x6 clear plastic bag that will need to be brought in, the only other bag that will be allowed is a small 4.5x6.5 clutch," Witty said. 
Husker fans will be able to see the upgrades at Nebraska's home opener against Arkansas State on Saturday, Sept. 2 at 7 p.m.
