This program is a trip down memory lane. It looks at the glory days of the hoopla surrounding Nebraska sports…digging into the past and taking a glimpse at today to describe the passion only Nebraskans can understand.

Come along on this fun journey through the Nebraska archive up to today, as we hear stories of tradition and experiences that help us all discover the Nebraska mascots, yell squad, dance team, band...and passion behind Big Red sports!
