The Nashville Huskers group was officially formed in 2009, with our first watch party at the former Closing Bell on Demonbreun Street. It was our hope that 20 people would show up to the first game, but to our pleasant surprise 80 diehard Husker fans showed up to cheer on the team. Little did we realize that the Nashville Huskers would become the strong and vibrant group it has become over the past few years!
In 2011, the Nashville Huskers became the 67th chapter of the Nebraska Alumni Association! Our banner is proudly displayed in the North End zone of Memorial Stadium.
In 2016, the Nashville Huskers teamed with the Nebraska Alumni Association to welcome thousands of Big Red fans to Nashville for the Music City Bowl. Even though the Huskers lost the game, the Nashville Huskers experienced a tremendous amount of pride hosting the team and Nebraska's great fans in our city!
The group has started a scholarship fund, which is made possible through the support of the membership. From 2013-2016, the Nashville Huskers were able to award two $1,000 scholarships (matched by the Nebraska Alumni Association) to local students attending the University of Nebraska.
The Nashville Huskers' success has been made possible by a dedicated group of volunteers, led by the group's founder and president, Emily Fay (pictured at right). Other volunteers include David Bell (treasurer), Tim Debuse (scholarships), Brent Elsasser (website), Elizabeth Tarnow (membership) and Casey Fay (logo and t-shirt design).
