The sun is shining and Husker nation is itching for some football.

The annual Red–White Spring Game kicks off Saturday at 2 p.m., and organizers are expecting a good–sized crowd.

"This is the main deal and it's always good to get an early look at the players, the kids, how it's going to go," fan J.J. Green said.

"It's for us, it's for the fans, I mean it's just going to be a lot of fun," UNL student James Aitken said.

Although it might be difficult to top last year's scrimmage as Jack Hoffman's touchdown run quickly rose to fame, people are still lining up to buy tickets. Husker Athletics representatives say 50,000 tickets were sold as of Friday afternoon. 

"Generally we have another 10,000 to 15,000 walk-up crowd day of, so we'll hopefully be in excess of 60,000 tomorrow," Assistant A.D with University of Nebraska Athletics said.

If you haven't bought your tickets yet, you can get them Saturday starting at 10 a.m. at the ticket office across the street from the stadium, Gate 10, and East Stadium. They cost ten dollars, but eighth graders and younger get in free.

Just like any other game day, officials are advising people to arrive early.

In addition, the Husker Nation Pavilion will be offering activities for the kids starting at 11 a.m. in the East Stadium Plaza. Plus, free mini train rides will be set up in the parking lot of Haymarket Park until 1:30 p.m.

Rain could also make an appearance at the game tomorrow, so it might be a good idea to bring a rain coat or a parka. Officials want to remind fans that no umbrellas are allowed in the stadium.
