I was in a Lincoln doctor’s office today and met John H., who is a devout Nebraska football fan. He follows the Huskers religiously in a variety of ways and was energized by everything Big Red with one small exception. At the end of our conversation, he said there’s only one drawback about Nebraska selling out of every home game. “My wife and I would love the opportunity to buy tickets for us and our three children, so we could experience at least one home game together as a family, but I don’t think there’s any chance of that ever happening,” he told me.
Well guess what? Now may be the best time for a family to attend a Nebraska football home game live, so they can see the Huskers in living color, hear the newest and greatest sound system in college football and who knows? Maybe a fan sitting next to them can take a photo that they’ll remember forever.
Nebraska Athletics has come up with a rare offering for Big Red fans. Because Florida Atlantic and McNeese State did not purchase all available tickets for both visiting teams, Nebraska has put together a special buy. We’re calling it the Cornhusker Kickoff Combo, and it saves a family of four $120 off the combined face value for the back-to-back season-opening games.
Nebraska’s public season ticket allotment once again is sold out. Single-game offerings for the Miami and Minnesota games are also sold out. The single-game price for the first two games is $65. The Cornhusker Kickoff Combo offers those same seats for $50 each if the buyer purchases the combined package for both games. That’s a savings of $15 per ticket. Single-game tickets for Nebraska’s conference matchups with Illinois, Rutgers and Purdue are $75 each.
Florida Atlantic visits Lincoln for the season opener on Aug. 30 at 2:30 p.m., and the Huskers host McNeese State on Sept. 6 at 11 a.m. For savvy shoppers, this truly is an uncommon opportunity. Click here to buy your tickets online, or call 1-800-8-BIGRED to order tickets over the phone.
