Travel Options Limited For Fans Going to Husker Men's Basketball Game

By  | 

Lincoln, Neb. If you're looking to travel down to San Antonio for the Nebraska men's basketball game against Baylor, you may be out of luck if you're planning to fly.

"We have not seen this kind of interest in many, many years," Marilyn Muir with AAA Nebraska.

Muir says flying will cost you because tickets are hard to come by.

"What we've been finding is airfare is pretty slim. There's just not many seats left, it's pretty limited availability," said Muir.

President of Executive Travel, Paul Glenn says fans are excited to travel to support the team.

"7:30 this morning the phones were ringing off the hook and people were wanting to get as much information as they could for this," said Glenn.

Glenn says making travel plans for this game is difficult because fans didn't know where the Huskers would play until 5 days before the game.

"There's just so much last minute...especially for Nebraska fans, we're not used to this," said Glenn.

And that makes airline ticket prices soar with such short notice. But Glenn says he's sure Husker fans will get to San Antonio some way.

"Husker fans are definitely creative when it comes to getting somewhere to support their teams and so I'm sure when you get down there and say how'd you get here, you'll be able to find a whole array of stories," said Glenn.
