Nebraska officially cancels 2020 Husker football spring game

Nebraska officially cancels 2020 Husker football spring game

LINCOLN — The Nebraska football spring game is officially canceled for 2020, an NU spokesman confirmed Tuesday evening, finalizing what Athletic Director Bill Moos had largely suggested in Monday evening radio comments.

“The spring game is not going to be on the 18th of April and most probably will not occur at all,” Moos had said on the Husker Sports Network, leaving the door open a crack for the game to be rescheduled after measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 have succeeded. “I hate to say that — we’ve got so many fans that that’s their only opportunity to the see the Huskers — but we’ve also been drawing close to 90,000 fans for a spring game, and that’s far more than is being allowed or recommended by a variety of sources.”

A later recap of Moos’ chat on said the event was canceled, and a Tuesday afternoon post on the website said the same, offering refunds for fans who’d purchased tickets. A spokesman confirmed that the game is canceled.

Nebraska hopes to recoup at least some of its 13 remaining spring practices sometime in May or June.
