Watch Site Information - Nebraska vs Iowa in the Heroes Game, November 25th
Even though the Huskers didn’t show up last week, our loyal Puget Sound area Husker fans did their part by showing up at all 3 of our watch sites to cheer on the Huskers and have a great time with fans and friends! In fact, if your are missing these watch site events, you’re missing some AMAZING things! Last week, we celebrated with a couple of newlyweds at the Lucky 7 with wedding cake at halftime, and at O’Blarneys – we celebrated Bill Gear’s 87th birthday! You never KNOW what’s gonna happen at our watch sites, so you should make it a point to go this week!!
Here’s more info about this weeks great watch site activities:
The Lucky 7 in Kirkland (doors open at 8am)
This is our long-standing “Husker Headquarters” flagship watch site, located northeast of Seattle. Doors open at 8AM and the full breakfast menu will be there to start your day right! As with every week at the Lucky 7, we’ll have a great time and a terrific halftime raffle. As always, please get there early, and try to keep the family dining area available for families with children.
O’Blarneys Pub in Olympia (doors open at 8:30am)
The place to be for Husker fans in the South Sound! Doors open at 8:30 with full breakfast to get you started. And, we’re the only game in town Friday at OB’s so come one, come all, an sit whereever you’d like!
The Red Door in the Seattle / Fremont District (doors open at 8:00am)
Our newest location – and closest to downtown Seattle! Wear red, buy tickets for the halftime raffle, and come hang out with us at this fun spot, with growing crowds!
Can’t make it to a watch site? The game can also be heard via our partner station KKNW/1150AM (Bellevue) at 1150AM, on 98.9 HD Channel 3, or online at 1150KKNW.com. The Husker Sports Radio Network pre-game show begins 30min before kickoff.
DAVID NAMED FINALIST FOR BUTKUS AWARD
Nebraska linebacker Lavonte David was named one of six finalists for the 27th annual Butkus Award on Tuesday morning. David is the fourth Husker to be a finalist for this prestigious honor and looks to join 1993 winner Trev Alberts as Nebraska's second Butkus award winner. Nebraska's other finalists were Broderick Thomas (1988) and Ed Stewart (1994). Want to read more? Look here.
OK – so Indianapolis is out now, but there is still a bowl season to come, and that means more football for the Huskers! If we can make it by Iowa this week, the most logical games for us would be The Outback Bowl, the Gator Bowl, or the Capitol One Bowl. The full bowl schedule with conference associations is here if you want to take a look!
Thanks, and GBR!
