KU vs. NU
Although I could argue that University of Kansas basketball possesses more prestige than University of Nebraska football, I know better than to make that argument in front of my wife. She's a NU grad who would banish me to the couch for making such a claim, so let's steer clear of debates about prestige and tradition. Let's talk food. Who has the better food?
At KU's Allen Field House, you can grab a slice of Pizza Hut pizza:
At NU's Memorial Stadium, you can grab a slice of Valentino's pizza:
In the pizza department, I'd say it is a draw.
At KU you can grab a mediocre BBQ sandwich from Bum Steer BBQ, but at NU you can grab a Runza sandwich, a savory blend of onions, cabbage, and meat wrapped in a pillow of dough.
I give the advantage to NU in the sandwich department.
At KU you get the run of the mill hot dog, but at NU you can get a Fairbury Stadium Dog:
At KU you can get Dippin' Dots, a culinary concoction that I don't understand. At NU you can get a fresh waffle cone with a scoop or two of ice cream straight from the campus creamery. Having a great agricultural program has its perks.
I think, you can see the direction this is headin'. If you want to enjoy some good food while you watch a game, travel to Lincoln, Nebraska.
What college has the best stadium food? This question begs to be researched.
PS . . . I still can't wrap my brain around the notion that basketball has started. In my mind it's still football season.
