Our ticket partner TiqiQ sent us some interesting data with regards to Huskers' season opener this past weekend against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles as well as their remaining slate of home games through out the remainder of the 2012 football season:
Nebraska football tickets, whether away or at home, are always in high demand and they can be difficult for some fans to obtain. We do weird things like buy season tickets of other schools just to guarantee getting a game at a place like Minnesota (last year) or Northwestern (this year). 50 years of consecutive sellouts will do that to a fan base.
Here's the thing - check out this link and you'll find that there are plenty of tickets available to every game this season. Notice that you can get into the Ohio State game for $108. Or $1,702. Your choice.
What is TiqIQ, you may ask?
