The Red Zone
THE RED ZONE
Protect The Vault
The Nebraska Men's Basketball program is housed in the sparkling new Pinnacle Bank Arena in the recently added "Railyard" portion of the Haymarket in Lincoln. With a capacity of over 15,000 (about 1,500 of which make up the Red Zone), "The Vault" has quickly become one of the most difficult venues in the country to play in. In its inaugural season, the Huskers home record dominated the Big Ten, finishing 15-1 at home, and losing by a total of 1 point. Some games, it seems like Nebraska fans will do almost anything to "Protect The Vault".

Paper: when the Huskers make their first field goal of each half, the entire student section throws shredde newspaper into the air
HUSKER POWER during the opposing team's player introductions, the student sections begin a HUSKER POWER chant back and forth, sometimes reaching up to 105 decibels in volume.
Free Throws: During Husker free throws, students raise one fist into the air in a silent salute, followed by a "GO BIG RED, WOOOOOOoooo" when a free throw is made.
3-Pointers: When the Huskers make a three point shot, students raise the "OK" hand signal into the air and shout "THREE. POINTS. GO BIG RED".
Travels: When the other team is called for a foul, the student section and pep band chant: "Now you messed up, Now you messed up, Now you HAVE messed up, You have messed up now".
