- [00:00:08.530]to be was Nebraska Field.
- [00:00:10.870]That's where Nebraska beat the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
- [00:00:14.800]There was no stadium then, but there was a field,
- [00:00:17.600]and it ran along 10th Street.
- [00:00:19.820]Kay Logan-Peters says
- [00:00:21.400]the design of Brace Hall on City Campus
- [00:00:23.990]was altered to make way for football.
- [00:00:27.300]And Brace was supposed to be a full rectangle,
- [00:00:31.910]and they carved this corner out
- [00:00:33.920]because that was the end zone.

- [00:00:46.570]There was no railroad, there was nothing.
- [00:00:49.070]And then University Hall, of course,
- [00:00:51.110]went in right over here, and it was alone. (laughs)
- [00:00:56.490]It was alone and on the prairie.
- [00:00:58.610]From books and websites,
- [00:01:00.230]to virtual reality, Dr. Logan-Peters shares
