Husker football- a tradition for many around Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

There are many traditions for people this time of year.

Going to the grandparents for Thanksgiving, or lining up to scoop up deals on Black Friday.

But for many people in KOTA Territory, the day after Thanksgiving is for one thing - and one thing only. And that, is some Cornhusker football.
For as long as many can remember, the Huskers always took onto the gridiron to battle some of their fiercest rivals.

Despite Nebraska changing divisions throughout the years, this end of the season game was always one for the ages.
"Gosh I can remember back when I was a young pup in 1973, you'd sit and wait for the day after thanksgiving for the big football game," explains Mike Pelster- owner of Mike's Husker Stuff. "We even got a day off of work on the farm just to watch the football game. But back in those days it was Oklahoma... and now we have Iowa, but it's still a tradition the day after Thanksgiving."

You can catch the Iowa Hawkeyes battle the Cornhuskers for the 'Heroes Trophy' right here on KDUH-TV, kickoff is at 10 a.m.
