For the first time in who knows how long, the Nebraska Cornhuskers Athletic Department has opened up the season ticket window for anyone to come up and purchase seats for the upcoming 2014 season.
From the AD's release:
Season tickets for the 2014 season are $56 per game, or $392 for the seven-game season ticket package. Fans who purchase season tickets save a total of $113 over the actual single-game prices. Ticket buyers must use a credit card at the time of purchase. For seats that require an annual donation, fans can choose to pay that amount at the time of purchase when buying over the phone at 800 8 BIG RED. Fans who choose to order online at Huskers.com/tickets will be billed for their annual donation if applicable. Contributions are due in full by July 7, 2014.
This upcoming season, the 125th Nebraska Football campaign, will have 7 home games. The marquee non-conference game will be against the Miami Hurricanes in primetime on September 20th.
This seat announcement comes the season after Nebraska opened their brand new East Stadium addition. The addition added 6000 seats in both regular and club seating for the '13 season.
It does make one wonder about the lengthy Nebraska Sellout Streak that has now reached 333 consecutive games. While it's fair to say that the streak should last for a little while longer, it's also fair to say that whatever supply Nebraska had for tickets before expansion last year has been settled, and the demand is pretty equal to what is available.
