Nebraska Spring Game Tickets On Sale Feb 4

New, 10 comments

Nebraska Spring game tickets will go on sale February 4th, which would be next Wednesday, the same day as National Signing Day. I'm not sure as to why they scheduled these at the same time.

Nebraska fans may purchase tickets online at, by phone at 1-800-8-BIG-RED or in person at the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office, located in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage (8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays). Beginning Monday, Feb. 9 through Monday, Aug. 3 the Ticket Office windows will be located at the Guest Relations desk inside West Stadium (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays).

Unless you're one of those people who have to have everything planned ahead of time, you can just do what I do, and wait until the last minute, drive to Lincoln, head downtown and find a scalper or someone who wants to get rid of one and buy it from them.

The Red-White Spring Game is scheduled for Saturday, April 11th. Good news for out of town fans wishing to travel back, the spring game is scheduled the same weekend as a home series for the Husker baseball team as they play Minnesota at Hawks field that weekend.

Time for the spring game has not yet been determined because it might be televised on BTN.

This will be everyone's first chance to see how Mike Riley's teams plan to play on offense and defense, even if it is fake football. Run the wrong type of offense/defense, and everyone will be bitching up a storm until August/September.*

We'll certainly discuss what Mike Riley will run for his first-ever offensive play as Nebraska's head coach. Perhaps he will be the most placating SOB ever and run a triple option. Perhaps he'll run a spread to confuse everyone. Maybe the offense will take the field and start doing yoga poses while the defense does the same.

It will be a disappointment if it is not a sell out, and there are extra incentives to make sure that it is:

New in 2015, fans will be able to secure their free youth tickets when buying adult tickets, with a limit of two complimentary youth tickets for each regular price ticket purchased. Any requests for more than two complimentary youth tickets per adult ticket would need to be made over the phone or in person at the Ticket Office prior to game day.

A limited number of $15 club seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. UNL faculty and staff will be able to purchase reserved tickets to the spring game for $5. Faculty and staff should purchase their tickets in person at the Ticket Office or over the phone in advance to receive their discount. Faculty and staff will also be asked to show their staff ID at the gate on game day.

UNL students will be admitted free to the game, but will need to have a ticket in hand for admittance. UNL students may also visit beginning Feb. 4 to secure their ticket.

*No one knows what "wrong type" means here. I don't really like scalloped potatoes. Perhaps you do.
