Moos talks Akron cancellation and rescheduling possibility

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. -- As the Nebraska football team looks ahead to Colorado on Saturday, many questions still remain about the cancellation of the Akron game last weekend.

For the first time since Saturday, Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos spoke to the media about where the two teams currently stand.

"We kind of left it verbally that we would like to play the game,” Moos said. “We don't have a common bye, so it would have to be at the end of the year."

A game at the end of the year would have to be contingent upon the Huskers and the Zips not making their respective conference championship game.

However, Moos did reiterate he wants the Huskers to play a 12th game, and wants that game to be played in Memorial Stadium.

In addition, in an email sent out Wednesday morning to season ticket holders and single-game purchasers for the Akron game, the University explained new tickets would be sent out if the game is rescheduled.

Below is the letter sent out by the University:

“We understand your disappointment regarding last Saturday’s football game not being played and appreciate your patience as we actively work toward adding a home game to complete our 2018 regular-season schedule.

As stated on the back of every printed ticket, the University of Nebraska does not issue refunds. However, if another home game is scheduled during the 2018 season, the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office will provide new tickets to both season-ticket holders and single-game ticket buyers who purchased tickets through Nebraska Athletics.

Fans who purchased tickets through a third-party need to contact that provider for answers regarding their ticket policies.”
