UCLA fans are already in town. We had a couple/few show up during last night's Thursday game thread asking things to do around Lincoln, and have had emails asking about tailgating and places to see.
The CN staff before the season put together a poll on what the "Can't Miss Spot In Lincoln Is For Football Fans", but I'd like to open up the Corn Flakes linky post this morning to the Bruins fans so that if they have any questions, they can ask, and Husker fans can give them answers, invite them to tailgates or whatever their pleasure might be.
Note to Bruins fans - there is a 24-hour provisional account membership on CN and we'll try to approve your accounts as we seen them today.
So, welcome to Lincoln, UCLA fans.. hope your stay is great except for the football game!
