Labor Day Weekend and the Start to Cornhusker Football

Not only are we approaching a long weekend with a sunny forecast, but it is the start to the Nebraska Cornhusker football season! Saturday, September 2 marks the first game as we take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves at home in Memorial Stadium at 7 PM. The game will be aired on BTN. With an evening game, Great Plains Communications has looked to our cable channel, HGTV for some tailgating tips.

After the game, you will still have two full days of weekend bliss to enjoy. What better way to revel in the nice weather and welcome the fall season, than to craft a wreath for your front door or as a gift. Below we have included a few beautiful designs we found from HGTV.
