Nebraska Coach Mike Riley Closes Fall Camp in Style

August 18, 2017

Nebraska head coach Mike Riley appears to have generosity in his DNA.

After the Huskers wrapped up their fall camp Thursday, Riley surprised the entire team with tickets to rapper Kendrick Lamar's DAMN. tour at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in downtown Lincoln Friday night.

Now, if Riley purchased the cheapest tickets available on (not likely) for his squad, he footed at least a $4,500 bill for them to see Lamar perform.

Lamar, who affectionately refers to himself as the greatest rapper alive, is touring following the release of his certified double platinum studio album DAMN.

Nebraska still has two weeks left until the 2017 season gets under way, but now the Huskers will turn their attention to game prep for their first opponent, Arkansas State, on Sep. 2.
