It didn't take long Tuesday morning for Nebraska football fans to snap up the last 1,000 of the Huskers' nearly 12,000-ticket allotment for the Dr. Pepper Big 12 Championship Game. Donor requests accounted for nearly 11,000 of the 11,909 tickets Nebraska received, and it took NU officials until 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 23, to process those orders. The remainder went on sale at 8 a.m. today.
After assisting those online, waiting in the lobby and holding on the phone, sales were complete in less than 15 minutes. Assistant Athletic Director for Ticketing Holly Adam said Tuesday morning that "Demand was very high, and the tickets went quickly." Nebraska will not receive any additional tickets for this game, she added.
The Big 12 North Division Champion Huskers will play third-ranked South Division Champion Texas in the conference title game on Saturday, Dec. 5, at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
Any remaining tickets for the game must be purchased through all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at (800) 745-3000, on-line at www.ticketmaster.com, or in person at the Cowboys Stadium ticket office. Tickets will not be sold through the Big 12 Conference office.
