There won't be a spring game in Memorial Stadium this year, so the Huskers are turning to a video game.
Nebraska announced Monday that it will hold a virtual spring game at 1 p.m. Saturday, the same time the real game was supposed to be held before it was canceled because of the coronavirus.
The teams will be composed of legendary Husker football players — the rosters will be unveiled Tuesday — and fans can watch on Facebook, Twitter or Twitch. The game will incorporate audio from the Husker Sports Radio Network.
Nebraska is also encouraging fans to wear red and celebrate the game at home, sharing pictures on social media with the #GBRUnited hashtag.
