A ticket broker in Omaha is offering football fans their money back for tickets bought to the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ home games this season, but only if the team wins the Big Ten Championship.
Ticket Express is running a promotion to build excitement for the team’s new coach, Scott Frost. It is Frost’s first season with the team. Ticket Express owner Chad Carr said that fans are eligible for this promotion if they purchase tickets by June 1, and the refund will not only cover season or individual game tickets, but will also cover parking passes and passes to the Champions Club tailgating facility.
However, fans hoping to get their money back will have to take the risk that the Cornhuskers will actually win the championship. Since joining the Big Ten in 2011, the team has only played for the championship once; they took a devastating loss to Indianapolis 70-31 back in 2012. Their last conference championship win was in 1999 with Frank Solich, who is now the current Ohio head coach.
According to NBC Sports, the team’s schedule is arguably the toughest in the Big Ten this season due to games against Ohio State, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Michigan, Iowa, as well as Michigan State. Last season, they were 4-8.
College football season is set to kick-off September 1 where the team will take on the Akron Zips at Memorial Stadium. They will continue with games throughout the month against the Colorado Buffaloes, Troy Trojans, Michigan Wolverines, and Purdue Boilermakers. Games will run through November and the Big Ten Championship Game is set to take place on December 1 at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
