The University of Nebraska will halt its decades-long tradition of releasing balloons at Huskers football games due to a helium shortage.
On Monday, University of Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts announced the tradition will end at Memorial Stadium during the 2022 football season.

"While we’re still concerned about the environmental impact of the balloons, the reality is acquiring helium in today's day and age, given some of the production of it is really challenged and it's been hard to get," Alberts said Monday on the Huskers Radio Network.
