Memorial Stadium Turf
(Most are custom made plaques, unique one of a kind items)

updated 09/24/2013

This first scan was submitted by James and Kathy Montreuil. 
The plate reads:  "A part of NU History From Memorial Stadium. Actual playing surface from the Greatest Era in Cornhusker Football History, 1970-1976.  Home field of '70-'71 National Champions, including the Greatest Team Ever Assembled, 
1971's 13-0-0 BIG RED MACHINE!
(Of course, that was written in 1976, long before the "Decade of Dominance")
I took this scan from an eBay auction.  Again, it is from the 70-76 stadium turf, as indicated on the patch.  


Lamont Lyon sent this pic of his '70-'76 turf plaque.  Variation of the top one, but with the shape of Nebraska.  Very attractive mounting on this one.

Double dose of turf: 1970-76 and 1992-98.
This tandem represents two of the most dominant periods of Husker Football, spanning both Devaney and Osborne eras:
40-5 (70-76) and 44-1 (92-98)!

Arnold Remington sent this pic of his 1970-'76 turf door mat cut in the shape of the state. Very nice!

Thanks again, Lamont!

Plaque containing a swatch of the Field Turf from Memorial Stadium that served from 1992 through 1998, replaced prior to the 1999 season, and replica of the horshoe.  I'll let the plaque tell the story.
