 Where to Watch Games When Traveling

There are chapters of the Nebraska Alumni Association throughout the world.  There's a good possibility there may be a chapter or spirit group near your destination away from home so you can enjoy the game at another Sea of Red. 

To find watch locations, vist the Nebraska Alumni Site and choose the region you will be traveling too.  Chapters always enjoy out of town guests! 

And if your travels take you to Cheyenne, WY, or if you live in Cheyenne, Old Chicago at 1734 Meadowland Drive (307-634-3400) would be happy to be your watch location.
