Nebraska football’s hottest ticket, the solar eclipse view of Memorial Stadium, QB Tanner Lee’s hype train continues, and more
Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Husker sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Husker football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Hottest ticket in town
Want to go to Nebraska’s revenge matchup with Ohio State? It might cost you a pretty penny. VividSeats.com told Land of 10’s Sean Keeler the Oct. 14 game is selling for more than twice the average ticket price at Memorial Stadium this season.
Total eclipse of the Huskers
Lincoln, Neb., and Memorial Stadium fell right in the path of totality for Monday’s Solar Eclipse. That created quite the view of Nebraska’s stadium as darkness fell for approximately 90 seconds at 1:03 p.m. CT.
Choo-choo. Hear that? The Tanner Lee hype train is still chugging along. With just over a week and a half until the start of Nebraska’s season, the quarterback has continued to impress NFL scouts. Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller can understand why.
Outside looking in
The Nebraska football team will enter the season unranked in the AP Top 25. It wasn’t a huge surprise, but the Huskers did snag four votes in the inaugural preseason poll.
A potential force
Sure, there are plenty of questions surrounding Nebraska’s passing game. From a brand new quarterback in Lee to a bit of uncertainty at the wide receiver position, it would make sense to be cautious with the group. However, they’re making the case early the passing attack to be a force to be reckoned with.
Welcome back, Huskers
Nebraska kicked off its fall semester of classes on Monday. No place like home.
