Tickets to the (Colorado-Nebraska) game are the highest priced single game tickets Colorado has ever sold, said David Plati, the school’s sports information director. The athletic department is projecting to bring in about $2 million for single game ticket sales for the Sept. 7 game, he said. Individual ticket prices for this year’s game, which are sold out, range in price from $110 to $225. Tickets to last year’s game in Lincoln cost a flat $90. Most of Colorado’s home game tickets start at $40 and top out around $135 near midfield, excluding club seats. But prices are driven by fan interest. And interest is high for the renewed rivalry ticket. The week two match-up will mark the first time the Huskers will be back in Boulder in a decade. Though Husker fans are known to have large contingents at road games, he hopes about 85 to 90% of those in attendance will be Buffalo fans. Husker fans have been trying to gobble up more than the 3,000 tickets that Colorado allotted to Nebraska as the visiting team. Nebraska received requests for nearly 15,000 tickets, said Garrett Klassy, a senior deputy athletic director for NU. That’s roughly 30% of the capacity of Folsom Field in Boulder, which seats a little more than 50,000 fans. Husker fans still looking for a ticket can find them on re-sale sites, but prices range from about $250 up to $1,000 per ticket. – Kelsey Stewart, Star Herald, Read More
