Football Fans Tailgate at State Parks on WOWT 6 Outdoors

With the kick off of football season around Nebraska (high school and college), on my WOWT 6 News outdoors segment I’ll be encouraging you to leave a little early for your game and tailgate in one of many Nebraska’s many state park lands. For those traveling from Omaha to Lincoln via Highway 6 for the Husker game Saturday afternoon, I’ll be telling you to leave a bit early and stop at this quiet, quaint state recreation area to grill some brats and burgers. Recognize it? (Photos are courtesy of the concession on the area).

Here’s the concession where ice, cold drinks and snacks can be purchased.

Big Red Fans, find out where we’re going by watching my Weekly Outdoor Report that airs LIVE on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News tonight (Thursday evening) during the station’s 6 p.m. CST sportscast.

If you’re unable to view the live broadcast of the outdoor report, video replays of it can be seen after the initial cast here. The report can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. Additionally, the station runs my outdoor segment on Saturdays later in its hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast. The WOWT 6 Sports Machine crew and I thank you for watching!

Now, what would a late August, early September Husker tailgate picnic be like without grilling some fresh Nebraska sweet corn, right?

Oh, and “GOOOO BIG RED!”
