'That's part of what makes Nebraska special': Frost looking forward to welcoming fans back to Memorial Stadium
The 2020 college football season was different. You know it, I know it an Scott Frost knows it.
On Monday, the fourth-year Nebraska head coach spoke to reporters as the program begins its first of 15 practices for spring ball. One of the talking points during Frost’s presser was seeing fans back in Memorial Stadium for the annual spring game and the 2021 season.
Clearly Frost, and everyone else suiting up for the Huskers, are going to be happy to look out into the Sea of Red again soon. He said it’s one reason why playing for Nebraska is such a uniquie experience.
“I just miss the fans,” Frost said, per Mitch Sherman of The Athletic. “Going through that year with no fans was rough. That’s part of what makes Nebraska special.”

Every Saturday in the fall, Memorial Stadium is packed full. The program has a decades-long sellout streak that is unmatched by any other program in college football. So while everyone went through the no fan policies — or at least limited capacity — it was a bit different in Lincoln.
Fans will be welcomed back to Memorial Stadium on May 1, when the Huskers take the field for the annual Red-White Spring Game. Athletic director Bill Moos has already stated that attendance will be at least 50% capacity, with the chance to increase to 75%.
No final decision has been made.
