Husker Fantasy Camp Design Carved In Local Corn Field: Did you happen to see U.S. Cellular's design carved in a corn field just west of town? Probably not, unless you were operating your drone or flying yourself up and around the Dorchester skies.

We are told by inside sources that the U.S. Cellular Husker Fantasy Camp Sweepstakes offers an exciting opportunity that includes a Memorial Stadium tour, chalk talk with former Nebraska football players,on-field activities, game jersey and playbook. Whatever it is, that's quite a billboard.
