Photos: Tim Miles, Bo Pelini Taking 'Big Red Express' Train Throughout Nebraska Today

Nebraska is known for having one of the most supportive and loyal fan bases in college sports. The Huskers have sold out every game in Memorial Stadium since 1962, a record streak of 333 consecutive games. The basketball program's recently-opened arena was packed with a sell-out crowd for each game during the 2013-14 season. 

Today, Nebraska is honoring its fans throughout the state. Tim Miles, Bo Pelini, and other members of the Huskers' athletic department are riding the "Big Red Express" train across Nebraska, making stops in various towns to greet Husker faithful.
