PRE-GAME SPECTACULAR

The Husker Marching Band’s pregame show, dubbed “Pre-Game Spectacular,” awakens the crowd inside Memorial Stadium, cuing the beginning of a rousing event. The band enters the stadium from all four corners, high stepping to the drum cadence. The cadence quickens, and the band breaks out into a run onto the field, as the announcer booms “Now is the time for the Marching Red Experience – Presenting the University of Nebraska Cornhusker… Marching Band!” As the band belts out a fanfare, the announcer then exclaims “This is the Pride of All Nebraska!…It’s Football Saturday in Memorial Stadium, and there is NO PLACE LIKE NEBRASKA!” The band plays “Dear Old Nebraska U,” “Mr. Touchdown USA,” “University of Nebraska March,” “March of the Cornhusker,” and “Hail Varsity!” as well as “March Grandioso”–accompanying the student section in singing what they refer to as “The Bo Pellini Song.”
