Tunnel Walk

Scott Frost led the Tunnel Walk for the first time as Nebraska's head coach during April's spring game.

Husker fans, brace yourselves: Changes are likely coming to the Tunnel Walk song.

Athletic Director Bill Moos said he has spoken with Frost about the shift and that both men are in agreement about making some tweaks.

“(Frost) is about tradition and legacy and all that, but he also is sensitive to young people today and what excites them and stuff,” Moos said. “So I think you may see a combination of different musics in the Tunnel Walk. That’s the last we discussed.”

Nebraska played a version of the Beatles’ “Come Together” by Gary Clark Jr. during the spring game in April. It has used “Sirius” by Alan Parsons Project since the 1990s.

Many fans have been outspoken about keeping the traditional song, and Frost acknowledged the debate in an April radio appearance on “Sports Nightly.”

“To me, the Tunnel Walk is more about the players coming out and being greeted by the fans and saluting the fans than it is the song that is playing,” Frost said then. “But I think a lot of smart people will put their heads together and figure out the best direction for that.”
