I know there is at least one Nebraska football fan who wears a hat which has a ticket from every game he has attended in his lifetime.
Since I don’t know his name, let’s call him Bob.
Bob likely isn’t a big fan of the move toward Mobile Ticketing. Well Nebraska is moving forward regardless.
Here is a statement from the Athletic Department:
Nebraska Athletics is excited to announce the release of a new mobile app, including the addition of built-in mobile ticketing. Fans will now have access to tickets and parking via their mobile device.
As part of our ongoing effort to enhance our fan experience and improve safety at all of our venues, we are excited to deliver a new and convenient way for fans to access tickets and parking passes for every Husker home event directly on their smartphone. Nebraska Athletics will utilize contactless entry into all venues beginning with the 2020 fall sports season. To increase safety at all venues, printed season and single-game tickets will not be mailed out this year. Fans will also not be able to utilize a print at home option. Souvenir tickets for football will be available in the official football game day program.
The Nebraska Huskers mobile app will be the easiest and most convenient way for fans to access their Husker ticket account. To save time at the venue, fans are encouraged to save tickets and parking to their Apple Wallet or Google Pay apps prior to arrival on game day.
* Tickets and parking have not yet been fully released so the ability to save to Apple Wallet or Google Pay apps is not available at this time. Ticket and parking transfers are also not available at this time.
Information on capacity at Nebraska home events will be determined at a later time.
While the Nebraska Huskers app is the easiest way for a fan to access their tickets and parking, fans can also still simply visit huskers.com/myaccount on their mobile browser. Log in with their email or Husker tickets account number and password. At that point fans will be able to manage their online account from their smartphone.
The new Nebraska Huskers App is available in both the App Store and Google Play Store. Fans with the current Husker App do not need to search for anything, simply download the latest update for the app and it’ll quickly update to the new version. New users can search Official Nebraska Huskers in the App Store or Google Play Store, or simply visit https://huskers.com/mobileapp on their mobile device and the link with automatically direct fans to the proper download location depending on their phone.
Along with mobile tickets, the new app includes many other features to keep you connected to your favorite Husker programs including:
Pick the sports you want to follow and get a customizable news feed,
Sign up for only the news you want to get with customizable push notifications for news and score alerts
A user profile to customize your app experience
Mobile ordering for select concession stands (this feature will be released at a later time)
Fan associations (student, alumni, season ticket holder and Husker fan) so we can better communicate with you
Free live and on-demand audio/video from the Husker Sports Network

Accounts that selected mail delivery for their season tickets will receive a $10 credit and accounts that selected UPS delivery will receive a $15 credit. Credits will be applied 2-3 weeks before the season.
I don’t know if Bob has a smart phone but I do know that my dad (a season ticket holder) does not. Maybe he will finally jump into the shark infested water that is having a smart phone.
