Some Nebraska spring game tickets selling for more than $600 on secondary market
Nebraska football fans are ready for their first glimpse of Scott Frost’s team. Tickets for the Huskers spring game sold out in less than 24 hours, the university announced Wednesday, and secondary market tickets are priced from $39 to more than $600.
This is partly due to the fact that Nebraska season-ticket holders were able to purchase 20 tickets each in a pre-sale, leaving a fewer tickets for the rest of the fans.
Six-hundred dollars is a good chunk of change to spend on a spring scrimmage, but it’s not clear yet whether people actually are buying the tickets at such a high price.

Nebraska sold 78,312 tickets for its spring game last year, and that was to see a team that ended up going 4-8. Safe to say there’s a little more excitement for the 2018 Huskers.
Nebraska announced its spring game sellout on National Signing Day after Scott Frost reeled in a top-25 recruiting class. Not bad for a new coach’s first recruiting cycle.
