You won't be seeing any red balloons floating in the Nebraska sky this year - at least not during Cornhuskers games.
- The University of Nebraska is suspending its yearly tradition of handing out red balloons at home games, citing a helium shortage and concerns about the environmental impact.
- The tradition stretches all the way back to the 1960's, with fans releasing balloons into the air after the first Huskers score.
- Athletic Director Trev Alberts says helium has been "hard to get" and is best used for medical purposes instead.
- How do you feel about Nebraska's decision? What are some of your favorite college football traditions?
