This Saturday, Nebraska football begins its 2021 season. A week later, the Huskers will play in their first home game of the year. The university has finally made a decision on the policies fans will have to abide by at Memorial Stadium this fall.
Nebraska announced on Thursday afternoon that fans are “strongly encouraged” to wear face coverings at home games on Sept. 4 and Sept. 11. Masks are required when using elevators.
“Nebraska fans attending September home games against Fordham (Sept. 4) and Buffalo (Sept. 11) are strongly encouraged to wear an appropriate face covering (covering both the nose and mouth) when on campus property,” the announcement reads, via Huskers.com.
The “strongly encouraged” recommendation obviously leaves the door open for fans to attend games without wearing a face covering. Other universities have implemented much stricter protocols for athletic events this fall. Nebraska football, though, is leaving it up to the fans to decide for themselves whether or not they’d like to wear face coverings.

Nebraska is coming off a 3-5 campaign during the 2020 season. It was another disappointing outcome in the Scott Frost era.
The Huskers have yet to become bowl eligible under Frost’s leadership. Nebraska football went 4-8 in 2018, 5-7 in 2019 and 3-5 in 2020. Is a bowl game on the horizon for the Huskers? Their schedule isn’t doing them any favors.
Nebraska will look to start off the 2021 season on a bright note this Saturday when it travels to take on Illinois.
