The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has been investigating counterfeit football tickets sold for last Saturday's game between Nebraska and Wisconsin at Memorial Stadium.

At least 16 fake tickets have been turned in to the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office. UNL Assistant Chief of Police Charlotte Evans says the buyers reported finding an ad on Craigslist, an Internet classified advertising site, that offered tickets for $200 each. Most of the victims reported picking up the tickets on Saturday from a man in Lincoln.

Evans says the scale of the ticket counterfeiting was new to the Nebraska school, but it has happened at other universities.
