Clancys Pub(2)

The #17 Huskers face another Big Ten West rival this Friday against the Iowa Hawkeyes in Iowa City at 1:30 p.m. AZ time at Clancy’s Pub in Scottsdale. On 11/12, Iowa upset No. 3 Michigan 14-13!

Clancy’s is a Midwest-oriented,  neighborhood sports bar, grill & pizza place.  The original Clancy’s Pub was established in Omaha in 1977. Clancy’s Scottsdale has been one of our core watch-sites since our club was launched.  Sometimes they make our beloved Nebraska Runza sandwiches, so ask if you love Runzas. While it gets pretty crowded on game days, they recently added 50+ more seats by opening Clancy’s Jack Room right next door.

11/19 Game Day is at Moon Valley Grill at 10:00 a.m. AZ Time

The #18 Huskers ended their two-game skid by defeating Minnesota 25-17 last week – Yay!   Now it’s on to a Big Ten opponent they’ve never played before. “Despite nearly 250 years of combined football history, Saturday’s matchup marks the first meeting in history between Maryland and Nebraska. It will also mark the first Maryland football game ever played in the state of Nebraska.” (from NCAA website).
Moon Valley Grill has been one of our core watch-sites since our club was launched. The owner, Roger Lindstrom, is from Oakland, NE and played WR at UNL ’83-’85. No wonder Husker Football is near and dear to his heart!

Get to Moon Valley Grill a little early to get a good parking place and your favorite seat or table. Go Big Red….
