Nebraska athletic director Steve Pederson has announced plans for selling 6,500 season football tickets that are becoming available with the expansion of Memorial Stadium.
Registration for the tickets begins immediately. People can put down a $100 deposit for each ticket requested by logging on to www.huskers.com or by calling or stopping by the N-U ticket office. The number is 1-800-8-BIG RED.
Pederson says donors to the athletic program will be given priority, but 1,000 tickets will be set aside for people who are unable to make a contributions.
An undetermined amount also will be set aside for letter winners, people on the football ticket waiting list and people with disabilities.
No date has been set for closing registration, but Pederson expects no problem selling out. He said a lottery system likely will be used to determine who gets tickets.
Nebraska has sold out an N-C-A-A record 275 consecutive home games.
