Excitement for the Northwestern Wildcats and Nebraska Cornhuskers American Football game at the Aviva

The Nebraska marching band and cheerleaders entertained curious onlookers at Trinity College and Dublin Castle today ahead of Saturday’s College Football Classic game.

The game will be played between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Northwestern Wildcats at Aviva Stadium in a first for both sides in Ireland.

Over 70 University of Nebraska students who made up the Cheer Squad, the Cornhusker Marching Band and the Scarlets Dance Team brought the famous American spectacle to Dublin, as did their mascot Herbie Husker.

Trinity’s front seat was filled with a sea of ​​red and white as cheerleaders flew through the air and the marching band readied their instruments.

Having arrived earlier this morning, today was the first time in Ireland for many Nebraskans and they told Independent.ie many of their fans had made the trip on the plane with them.

After the initial celebrations, the cheerleaders, dancers and musicians boarded a bus and headed to Dublin Castle to once again fill the area with their bombastic cheers, brass instruments and bright red uniforms.

“Our team did a really, really good job this year, working super hard on all of our stunts to get the crowd involved and work on different angles and different atmospheres. We’re super excited and proud of our fight songs and so excited to share it with you all,” said Delaney Cutler, one of the Scarlets cheerleaders.

Overall, the number of cheerleaders, musicians and dancers at the University of Nebraska is nearing 300 – but only a few have been chosen to make the transatlantic journey and support their team.

“We are very happy to be here. I’ve handpicked all my seniors and a few juniors to show you our very best work. We have invested many hours of practice; The band rehearsed. We’re going to give you a great show,” said Eryn Butzke, Spirit Squad head coach and former NFL Denver Broncos cheerleader.

Ms Butzke told Independent.ie the current cheerleading squad has been practicing since the summer, with members being rotated out due to a three-year lag after completing their graduation.

The Aer Lingus sponsored game was due to take place three years ago but has been postponed to this Saturday due to Covid 19.

“All the fanfare that comes with American football. We have the cheerleaders and band from both teams, there will be a halftime show.

“There are 120 players for each team that is here. It’s going to be incredible, it’s going to be something you don’t see in Irish sport, so we really encourage everyone to come out and bring their friends and family. Just come along for a day of fun,” said Sabrina Egerton, Director of Marketing and Communications at Corporate.ie.

“We’re thrilled to be able to show Dublin all that cheer and dance is all about in America. I know we are all really looking forward to the Aer Lingus Football Classic. Blush big.”
