Memorial Stadium - Touchdown Balloons
As a native Nebraskan, nothing is more beautiful than the "Sea of Red" - Memorial Stadium filled to capacity with nearly 90,000 fans on gameday. This photo was taken from North Stadium on September 5th, the 2015 season opener against BYU. The photo was taken with my Nexus 6 just seconds after the Husker's first touchdown of the game. It is a tradition at Memorial Stadium to release red balloons after the first score of the game. When I was a kid in the 1980's there were so many balloons the sky would turn red but today due to ecological concerns there are much fewer balloons released.
