The hiring of Scott Frost has Nebraska fans so excited, even the athletic department's ticket office is overwhelmed. 

The 2018 football season ticket renewals were launched the same weekend Frost was hired, and the speed of renewals was noticeably quick, assistant athletic director for tickets Holly Adam said. 

But the amount of requests to be put on the waiting list for season tickets is something the athletic office has never seen, Adam said. 

"This type of push is unprecedented, so we don't really have anything to compare numbers," Adam said. 

Season ticket-holders are asked if they want to renew, and if they do, the tickets are theirs. If they don't renew, those tickets are given to whoever is next on the waiting list.

Since Frost was hired last Saturday, Adam says there have been more than 1,300 people put on the season ticket-holder waiting list.

To bump ahead in the process, Adam said fans can guarantee the chance to purchase season tickets by placing a $100 down payment per ticket, which will count toward the cost of the season ticket. 

Single game tickets for the 2018 season have not been released yet. 

Nebraska currently has the longest sellout streak in the country at 361 straight games. With Frost at the helm, that doesn't seem to be going anywhere.
