Nebraska’s annual Red-White Spring Game is set for Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium, with kickoff at 1 p.m.
Reserved ticket sales for Saturday’s contest are at 47,500, with a large walk-up crowd expected on the day of the game. Fans hoping to avoid long lines and delays at ticket windows or will call windows on Saturday are encouraged to purchase tickets as soon as possible through Huskers.com, by calling the Athletic Ticket Office at 800-8-BIG RED, or in person during the week at the Ticket Office (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)

Youth must still secure a complimentary ticket for admittance by contacting the Ticket Office this week.
