IS THE SELLOUT STREAK IN DANGER?

No, no it is not.

Praying for the sellout streak
Jon Johnston

In this year’s edition of our annual freak-out over the SELLOUT STREAK, the athletic department has notified fans and the media that there are 600 tickets available for sale this coming Wednesday (May 30th).

I’ll admit, I’m shocked there are tickets available. Then again, 600 tickets is less than one percent of the total available tickets so it hardly suggests any danger to the Sellout Streak.

The tickets will be located in one of the two end zones and will be available at a lower donation level, fetching $150 per seat, in addition to the $399 for the seven game slate. Only four tickets will be available per account holder. (In case you’re curious, if the athletic department sells all 600 tickets at the minimum level, they’ll raise enough to pay either Ryan Held or Travis Fisher for 2018.)

In case you’re curious, here is this fall’s home slate:

2018 HUSKER FOOTBALL

September 1st: Akron

September 8th: Colorado

September 15th: Troy

September 29th: Purdue (Homecoming)

October 20th: Minnesota

November 10th: Illinois

November 17th: Michigan State

To purchase tickets, you can either go through the AD’s Nebraska Ticket Central or call (800)-8-BIGRED*.

These tickets do not appear to include mandatory appearances with Lil’ Red, which means they’re a pretty good value.

Here’s the release from the athletic department:

Limited Number of Season Tickets Remain for 2018 Season

By NU Athletic Communications

| 05/25/2018

With kickoff for the 2018 football season less than 100 days away, Husker fans have the opportunity to be a part of the game-day experience at Memorial Stadium this fall. The Nebraska Athletic Department will place approximately 600 remaining season tickets on sale on Wednesday, May 30 at 10 a.m.

Fans interested in purchasing tickets may do so at Huskers.com/tickets or by calling 1-800-8-BIG RED. The remaining seats are located in both end zones of Memorial Stadium and are at lower donation levels, beginning at $150 per seat. Purchases will be limited to four tickets per account.

“I have heard from many Husker fans who want to be there from the start of the Coach Frost era, and this is a great opportunity to do just that,” Athletic Director Bill Moos said. “It is also important to me that we have as many new season ticket holders as possible at Memorial Stadium, so we are limiting the number of tickets one individual can purchase.”

Season tickets for the 2018 football season are $399 for a seven-game ticket package, or $57 per game. Season ticket holders receive the benefit of more than a 20 percent cost savings versus the price of single-game tickets. New season ticket buyers will pay for their tickets and donation at the time of purchase.

Anyone interested in jumping in on Frost Mania?
