LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - Husker fans can still get their hands on tickets to this Saturday’s traditional scrimmage.

Kickoff is at 1 p.m. Saturday.

As of Wednesday, the University of Nebraska Athletic Department was reporting that about 32,500 tickets had been sold for the Spring Game. Attendance is limited to 50% capacity this year due to COVID-19 rules. Because of the pandemic, last year’s Red-White game was played virtually.

In preparation for fans’ return to Memorial Stadium, the athletic department on Wednesday shared fan information on parking, gate entry, and COVID-19 protocols.

Fans will be required to wear facemasks when not eating or drinking, and are asked to remain in their seats. The athletic department also noted that many areas — including the field level — will not be accessible to the public.

Tickets will be mobile-only, and technical assistance will be available at the gate for those who might need help with that process. Fans will not be allowed re-entry once their ticket has been scanned.

Concessions will be available, and the clear-bag policy will be in effect.

Full details provided by the athletic department are as follows:
