There's still a chance for any Husker fan that missed out on Spring Game tickets to see new head coach Scott Frost's (sort of) debut on the sidelines of Memorial Stadium.
Nebraska announced Thursday it would conduct a ticket lottery with a pool of 1,000 returned tickets for the April 21 game. Each ticket will cost $10 with a max of four per request. Beginning on Monday, April 9 at 10 a.m. and running until Tuesday, April 10 at 5 p.m., fans can go to the Huskers' online ticket market to sign up.
🚨 SPRING GAME TICKETS AVAILABLE 🚨
Sign up for the ticket lottery at https://t.co/E7K1EcueqK starting at 10:00 am on April 9.

Once the sign-up window closes, the ticket office will have a random lottery to determine who gets what. The "majority" of the seats available are in either endzone, according to a release from the university, and chosen fans will be notified on Thursday, April 12. Credit cards won't be charged until that time.
“When these tickets recently became available we wanted to make sure that all Husker fans had an equal chance to acquire them,” Husker athletic director Bill Moos said in a release. “We want as many Nebraska fans as possible to be able to enjoy the spring game experience and see the debut of the 2018 Cornhuskers.”
Originally, tickets for the annual Red-White game were put on sale in February and sold out in just over 24 hours. Nebraska ran into some rough waters when fans grew upset over the process. Season-ticket holders got first crack at purchasing tickets and could purchase as many as 20 at a time. A number of those same tickets later showed up on ticket resale sites like StubHub for upwards of $699.
Call this an attempt to make amends.
The scrimmage is set for an 11 a.m. kickoff and will be broadcast on BTN.
