LINCOLN — Nebraska’s nation-leading, 375-game sellout streak at Memorial Stadium will remain intact, Husker athletic director Bill Moos said during his monthly appearance on the Husker Sports Network on Tuesday.
“If you can’t sell, than you can’t sellout,” Moos said.
The 2020 season will get an “asterisk” by it because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Big Ten is not allowing its teams to hold public ticket sales for the upcoming season.
Moos said because of the unprecedented circumstances, the sellout streak will get a mulligan this year.
“If there was a restriction of 25% capacity, I’d count that as a sellout,” Moos said. “If it was 50%, sellout, because we’d do that. We’d fill that. No fans, or very few — primarily players, parents, their family members and maybe just a handful of friends, coaches’ families — we’re still working on that. This is going to be an asterisk year where the sellout streak just settles where it is and we pick up again next year, when hopefully we’re back in full swing.”
The Huskers open the season at Ohio State on Oct. 24. Their first home game will be Oct. 31 against Wisconsin.
