Nebraska still has 1,000 student tickets for a lousy home schedule

The Big Ten has seen mixed results when it comes to student ticket sales. While Ohio State and Penn State have thrived, Michigan and Iowa have certainly been struggling to find ways to sell more student tickets for the upcoming season. Throw Nebraska in the same boat as the Wolverines and Hawkeyes.

The Associated Press reports Nebraska still has 1,000 tickets to sell to students. The Huskers started with 8,500 tickets reserved for students at Nebraska. Time is starting to run out, but Nebraska spokeswoman Chris Anderson informs the AP the school does anticipate selling the remaining student tickets before the start of the 2014 season.

To entice students to purchase the remaining tickets, Nebraska has some plans including pregame festivities, a student rewards program and an opportunity to purchase guest tickets. The good news for Nebraska is the school reportedly does well in the month of August with student ticket sales, which makes sense. As college students start to return to campus and start thinking about the fall, those who held off on buying student tickets earlier may decide to finally reserve some tickets for the upcoming season.

One of the reasons tickets may not be already sold out is the home schedule for Nebraska is pretty lousy. Outside of a non-conference game against a Miami team that could be either mediocre or above average in 2014, Nebraska’s home schedule includes Florida Atlantic, McNeese State, Illinois, Rutgers, Purdue and Minnesota. Nebraska’s biggest games of the season all take place on the road at Michigan State, Wisconsin and Iowa. Nebraska does not play Michigan, Ohio State or Penn State this season either.

    I like to read Nebraska’s 2014 schedule before I go to bed. It always puts me right to sleep

    Wow, what a terrible schedule. That sucks for Nebraska fans.

    Don’t schedule FAU and McNeese would be the easy solution to ticket sales. Of course that causes some problems of its own. The B1G 9 games schedule will help. Hopefully the 10 game schedule is more than just talk.

    I can’t stand it when major D-1 programs refuse to schedule decent non-conference games and than complain about people not buying tickets.

    School isn’t complaining about not selling tickets, just reporting information.

    I 100% guarantee the tickets will be sold as Nebraska will continue its current 333 game sellout streak.

    Fans like myself will make the contribution this year as future home schedules are significantly better than 2014, and we will thankfully never again play another FCS opponent.

    @ huskerzfan

    In the past 4 years Nebraska has only played two teams from a power conference in non-conference play. And their .500 in those games, excuse me if I think Wyoming, Fresno State and Southern Miss are pathetic, when balanced against a storied program like the Huskers. For Christ sake next year they play South Alabama.

    the huskers learned a lesson from the buckeyes. better to play no one and have people wonder if you stink , than to schedule ranked opponents and remove all doubt. if the huskers run the table with this schedule ,no knowledgeable football fan would ever imagine they belong in the final four. welcome to the”B!G CUPCAKE”.

    And who does your school play OOC?

    Next year Nebraska has BYU, Miami, and Southern Miss OOC. 2016 we currently have Fresno State and Oregon with an open date.

    As for Fresno State and Southern Miss being pathetic?

    These non power schools own wins over such schools as Alabama, Wisconsin, Oregon State, Nebraska, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Washington, Kansas State, Virginia, USCw, UCLA, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, TCU, etc..

    Hardly the pushovers you make them out to be, much less Nebraska actually visiting these schools stadiums for games.

    Ohio State has a cupcake OOC schedule this year?

    Navy was 9-4 last year and return 15 starters for a game to be played in Baltimore.

    Cincinnati is the AAC preseason favorite.

    Virginia Tech is an annual contender and power in the ACC having won 4 conference championships in the ACC since 2004. More than any other team in the conference since 2004.

    Keep dogging the Big 10. Makes wins over Pac 12 conference champs and SEC teams all that much sweeter.

    ohio state fan your schedule is a joke every year. lmao you think navy kent state va tech and cincinnati are good lol.

    myopian Suckeye State fan just stfu everytime u run your mouths you expose how dumb u really are. make that all Little 10, im sorry meant sorry Little 14 fans. you are so bad you think you are good.

    10-22 in Bowl games last 4 yrs. dont tell everyone how tough your conference is. your conference is a joke. its pne step up from the MAC

    @ huskerzfan

    Yes trying to defend how tough Conference USA & the Mountain West is pathetic.

    Also trying to associate a win from another team is even more pathetic, BTW in the past 3 years neither Fresno State or Southern Miss beat Bama, Wisconsin or Kansas State. Trying to bring up something from the 1990’s or 1980’s is just a joke.

    As for playing the OOC schedule if you think Miami is hard team to play just ask any ACC fan how tough the Hurricanes are? Hell you could ask any Kansas State fan that too. So like I said one Power Conference team in OOC that being Miami(which at is better version of Wake Forest) and BYU is in the same class as a service academy they have smaller players so you should win, want to brag about beating Air Force next?

    To answer your question I’m a UCLA booster and my team just beat yours 2 years in a row, because the Bruins aren’t Fresno State. (Mic Drop)

    @ dmvtransplant

    So, as a UCLA fan I’m sure you are aware of your future schedules that include BYU, Fresno State, Hawaii, San Diego State, and Memphis, right?

    I’d sure hate for you to have to relive your 2008 season when you guys ran into these losses against pathetic smaller players:

    BYU 59 UCLA 0
    Fresno State 36 UCLA 31

  16. planecrashguy says: Aug 2, 2014 7:25 PM

    Big time programs hate playing service academies, especially USNA. They have to prepare for an offense they will, in all likelyhood, see only once all year. That offence takes its toll on opponents’ D-lineman, lots of high ankle sprains and knee injuries, due to cut blocks used in the scheme. All those academy kids play hard every down, never take a play off.

    Ask Steve Spurrier about Navy.
