Nebraska announced today that it has sold 46,500 tickets to the Red-White game which is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. this Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
That number appears to be low but I think after the past four seasons the fact that 46,500 fans are willing to show up for a practice is actually quite impressive. I believe that the number will get well over 50,000 by the time the game actually starts.
If you are still interested then you can buy advanced tickets for $10 a piece at Huskers.com.
The Memorial Stadium gates will open at 11:30 a.m. Please remember that the gates 1, 6, 8, 16 and 16a and 22 will be closed for entry because of the new construction. I have always gone in Gate 16, so I guess I will have to find a new way in.
The rest of the information can be found below.
I do not believe that you will be able to buy a beer in Memorial Stadium this coming Saturday.
Here is the full statement from the Athletic Department:
