Get out your calendars, everyone! Nebraska has announced ticket sales for the lightly-attended football scrimmage known as the spring game. Your first (public) chance to see (most) of the 2019 Nebraska football squad will be held on April 13th, 2019. (No time or TV details have been announced.)
Football season ticket holders will be able to reserve tickets starting February 5th at 10am. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the public at 10am on February 6th, which also happens to be the second half of National Signing Day, so you can buy your tickets and then check in over here to see who else Nebraska picks up for the 2019 class.
In general, tickets will run you $10 a stub, with some limited quantities of club seating available at $20. Faculty and staff can purchase tickets for $5. Students can show up straight from their dorm rooms with just their IDs and the shirt on their back. Children 8 years or younger can enter for free (limited to two free tickets per regularly priced ticket purchased). Got all that?
As a change from 2018 sales, purchases will be limited to 10 tickets per account for both season ticket holders and the general public.
A limit of 10 tickets per account will be in place for both season ticket holders and the public on-sale, an adjustment from last year’s maximum order of 20 tickets. https://t.co/6tE2v8898d— Brian Rosenthal (@GBRosenthal) January 24, 2019

Don’t buy tickets to the Spring Game before they are even on sale on sites like this. Places like this are just gambling they will get tickets in these areas. Don’t let your Spring Game turn out like the #FyreFestival pic.twitter.com/JDrrBzGFIO
