LINCOLN – Huskers Athletic Director, Bill Moos, announced last night that the Husker Football spring game will not be played this year.
“I fully support the actions taken by the Big Ten Conference, as well as Chancellor Green and University of Nebraska leadership. Safety of our students, coaches, staff and fans has been the driving force behind the tough, but necessary decisions that have been made,” said Moos.
He announced the cancellation of the Huskers spring game last night on Sports Nightly. Tickets will be refunded to purchasers by the Husker Ticket office, which is currently closed to the general public to take precautionary measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The Ticket Office staff is still able to assist by phone (800-8-BIG RED) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) M-F, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Moos expressed his sympathy for the players who’ve had their seasons dramatically altered this year. “As a former college football player and a parent of college student-athletes, I have great empathy for our young men and women who had their seasons cut short, particularly our seniors,” he said. “At the appropriate time, there will be discussions regarding eligibility issues. I assured our student-athletes that Nebraska is committed to representing their best interests during those conversations.”
