If you had tickets to watch Nebraska football play Akron on Sept. 1, you’ll need a new stub for the team’s replacement game with Bethune-Cookman on Oct. 27.

Nebraska Athletics is issuing replacement tickets for the replacement game. Most folks who held tickets for the season opener, which was canceled by rain and lightning, will be sent new tickets.

Sometime this week, season ticket holders will be sent a new print-at-home ticket for the Bethune-Cookman game via email or, if they don’t have an email registered, by mail. The same goes for those who bought single-game tickets through Nebraska athletics and for fans who have season parking permits through the university.

Kickoff for the replacement game will be set six to 12 days before kickoff, as will TV info.

The Daytona Beach, Florida, school is guaranteed $800,000 for playing in Lincoln.

Nebraska won’t be offering exchanges or refunds for fans who can’t make the game. Those ticket-holders are encouraged to give replacement tickets to friends or family or resell them on website such as StubHub.

No new tickets will be released to the public because the Akron game was a sellout. If the opponent doesn’t sell its allotment, NU will follow its usual procedure for making the remainder available to the public.
