Nebraska / Northwestern – Game 7 of the 2014 Football Season

Watch Partner Location – What Does it Mean
     We know that people would like a watch partner location within walking distance to their home.  We know that people would like volunteers at all watch partner locations so there are drawings and more.  Due to certain requirements for partners (insurance, donations, discounts) as well as a limited number of volunteers, the Co4NU Board decided providing our members with more choices in where to watch games, and the ability to receive discounts year round off of regular priced food and drink would be the best compromise than limit the number of sites to only 5 or 6 in Colorado to watch Husker football games.  This is why not all of our watch partner locations will look or feel the same, and why some locations may only be a handful of people and others may be hundreds.  All watch partner locations will provide an area with a select number of televisions tuned to the game as well as sound whenever possible.
If you are looking for something more than a place to watch Husker football, which is what all of our Watch Partner Locations guarantee, please review those locations that have volunteers present.  You can also think about volunteering for a location as well if you would like to help a Watch Partner Location be more than just a place to watch Husker football.
Husker Football
     The seventh football game for the 2014/2014 season is Saturday, October 18, 2014 with a 5:30 PM kickoff and will be airing on BTN.  Please join us at one of our watch partner locations, listed here, to enjoy the game in a Sea of Red as the Huskers take on Northwestern  Those locations that have an ** (asterisk) by them in the eNews are scheduled to have volunteers present for this game. When volunteers are present they will have memberships for sale, Coloradans for Nebraska merchandise, and half-time drawings.  And if you would like to help out for a game, please ask one of the volunteers what you can do to help as we can always use extra hands collecting donations for the Co4NU Scholarships.
