Columns outside of Memorial Stadium
The area around Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb., has lots of unique architectural features. Columns from the early 20th century and the original gates to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, pictured here on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2019, are just a couple of the things fans and visitors can see when visiting the stadium.
