Tracking Nebraska's Weekly Tunnel Walk Songs and Themes

It's a blend of the old with the new. That's what athletic director Bill Moos promised about Nebraska's new Tunnel Walk, and that's exactly what has happened.

Each week, the Huskers unveil a new theme and song to go along with The Alan Parsons Project's traditional 'Sirius.' We're keeping track of each theme and song for every home game.

We'll keep the list updated here.


 

Nebraska vs. Akron

Theme: No official theme, but six were unveiled for the remainder of the home schedule: power, speed, grit, tradition, passion and legacy.

Song: Jungle by X Ambassadors and Jamie N Commons

Nebraska vs. Colorado

Theme: Power

Song: Thunderstruck by AC/DC

Nebraska vs. Troy

Theme: Speed

Song: Let Me Clear My Throat by DJ Kool

Nebraska vs. Purdue

Theme: Grit

Song: X Gon' Give It to Ya by DMX

Nebraska vs. Minnesota

Theme: Tradition

Song: Remix of Sirius by The Alan Parsons Project

Nebraska vs. Bethune-Cookman

Theme: Passion

Song: Remix of Sirius by The Alan Parsons Project

(It's worth noting that this Tunnel Walk appears to have been the one Nebraska originally intended to use for Illinois. The video mentions returning to the Sea of Red, which Nebraska would have done after a bye week and trip to Ohio State.)

Nebraska vs. Illinois

Theme: A tribute to Memorial Stadium and the words inscribed on the four corners of the stadium.

Song: Remix of Sirius by The Alan Parsons Project

(As noted after the Bethune-Cookman matchup, the 'Passion' theme seems to have been the one originally intended for Illinois. As a result, Nebraska did not have one word to go along with the season's themes but instead focused on the history of Memorial Stadium.)

Nebraska vs. Michigan State

Theme: Work

Song: Remix of Sirius by The Alan Parsons Project (which now appears to be here to stay)
