LINCOLN — The University of Nebraska is warning fans buying tickets for Saturday’s game against Michigan to beware of counterfeit tickets.
A university press release issued Wednesday said fans should be cautious if buying tickets from sources other than the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office or Huskers.com.
Several schools around the country have recently witnessed a rise in the distribution of counterfeit tickets, including Nebraska.
At the Nebraska-Wisconsin game in Lincoln on Sept. 29, officials discovered 18 counterfeit tickets had been sold on Craigslist for that game.
The Huskers will celebrate the 50th anniversary of theirs NCAA record sellout streak at Memorial Stadium on Saturday night. It will be the 323rd consecutive sellout, a streak that dates back to 1962.
“We believe the incident with counterfeit tickets at the Nebraska-Wisconsin game was an isolated situation,” Holly Adam, assistant athletic director for ticketing, said. “My recommendation to fans would always be to know who the seller is before you buy tickets from an outside source.”
