In the middling comedy Yes Man, Carl (Jim Carrey) and Allison (Zooey Deschanel) take a spontaneous trip to Lincoln, NE. At one point, they attend a University of Nebraska Cornhuskers football game at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

Although the aerial crowd shots of Memorial Stadium (Lincoln) are accurate, the close-ups were shot with Carrey, Deschanel and over 700 extras at L.A.’s Memorial Coliseum. Carrey, dressed as a Cornhusker, entertained the extras by attempting a few punts in the empty stadium.

Memorial Stadium (Lincoln) was dedicated on October 20, 1923, and is so named for the 3,839 Nebraskans who died in World War II, the 225 in Korea, and the 422 in Vietnam.

The stadium holds an ongoing NCAA record of 317 consecutive sellouts, which began in 1962. On game day, Memorial Stadium is the third largest city in Nebraska with a population of around 87,000 (only Omaha and Lincoln are larger).
