Going to the Husker spring game on Saturday? Here are some helpful tips — and some extra-curriculars — for your day in Lincoln.
* * *
It will be, well, decent in Lincoln during the game. Forecasts call for clouds, a pretty good breeze likely approaching 20 mph at times and highs in the low 70s.
TV AND RADIO?
Yes and yes. Husker Sports Network will provide live radio coverage beginning at 11 a.m. The game will be televised live on BTN at 1 p.m.
ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE
More than 65,000 reserved tickets have been sold, with a large walk-up crowd expected. Fans are strongly encouraged to buy their tickets in advance and can do so online at Huskers.com until 11 a.m. on Saturday and use the print-at-home ticket option.
You can buy tickets at the stadium at the following locations: Gate 10 ticket windows (NW corner of stadium), Gate 1 (south stadium) and a trailer on the East Plaza. The Gate 1 and Gate 10 locations will have credit card availability, and will also have free youth tickets. The trailer on the East Plaza will be a cash-only location, and will not have complimentary youth tickets.
