Huskers football will hold the annual Red-White Spring Game on April 16 at Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

More than 60,000 reserved tickets have been sold for the annual spring scrimmage. Tickets, which are $10 each, remain available, click here for more information.

Children in grades eight and under will be admitted for free and are encouraged to take part in a drug free pledge at halftime. Youth must secure a complimentary ticket for the game.

Other key points about the game include:

  • Youth taking the drug free pledge will do so from the stands rather than on the field. This change was made as a safety measure.

  • The Ticket Office and Gate 10 locations will have cash and credit card sales. The East Stadium plaza location will be a cash-only sales location. Any reduced rates or kids tickets need to be purchased/secured at the Ticket Office or Gate 10. Those tickets are not available on the East Stadium Plaza selling location.

  • Fans may enter any open gate at Memorial Stadium. Gates not available for entrance will be Gates 1, 6, 8 and 17. Some additional gates will close after kickoff.
