Recognizing that Union Pacific and the University of Nebraska have strong bonds with so many towns across the state, the two are partnering to further that connection with those communities.

The Union Pacific Big Red Express is the Nebraska version of a historical throwback - the whistle-stop tour that brought U.S. presidents to towns where they could step off the train, stand on a platform and communicate directly with the people they served. Coaches from the University will meet and greet fans across the state,  thanking them for all the support they've shown to the University of Nebraska Athletics, year after year and decade after decade.
