The 125th Husker football season is right around the corner. For the first time this year, the ticket office is offering a special two-game package for the Florida Atlantic and McNeese State games.
Even though public season tickets are sold out, single-game tickets including the Cornhusker Kickoff Combo went on sale Tuesday.
"Florida Atlantic and McNeese State have smaller quantities that they need and that the contract allowed so we have more to sell and just decided to make a package deal," Assistant A.D. Holly Adam said.
If you buy the combo, your seats would be in the visiting sections of the stadium. It costs $100, $30 cheaper than buying tickets for the two games individually.
The Huskers play Florida Atlantic on August 30 and McNeese State on September 6. Ticket Office representatives say the Athletic Dept. has done deals like this before with other sports, and the feedback was positive.
"Fans really liked it, they like the opportunity to kind of mix and match games and we might do something like this in the future with conference and non-conference games but this was kind of a start for us to get our feet wet and see how it goes," Adam said.
She advises to get 'em while they're hot. Single-game tickets are popular and will go fast.
Individual tickets for other Nebraska home games cost $75 each.
Tickets can be purchased on-line at huskers.com, in person at the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office (Stadium Drive Parking Garage) or by calling 1-800-BIG RED.
