The University of Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame Plaza honors all 24 Husker Athletic programs and the elite student-athletes and coaches who have continued the tradition of excellence at Nebraska. The Plaza was completed in the fall of 2015. It stretches from the columns above the Ed Weir Outdoor Track and Field Stadium and continues to the historic Nebraska Coliseum. It is accessible to the public at all times. The first Hall of Fame class, consisting of 22 former student-athletes representing all sports, was inducted on Sept. 4th, 2015 at a private ceremony, then honored at the football game the following day. Each program is honored on the columns, and Hall of Fame classes are represented on granite plaques on the fence.
The University of Nebraska has an outstanding history and tradition of excellence in athletics, and our tremendously talented coaches and student-athletes have played a pivotal role in forging this reputation. Therefore, it is with great enthusiasm and respect that we have created the University of Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame and now proudly honor an elite group of University of Nebraska student-athletes and coaches.
