There’s plenty of buzz surrounding Nebraska for the first time since 2016, and much of it has to do with sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez, who returns for his second season as a starter. Even though the Cornhuskers won only four games last season, Martinez was part of the Heisman Trophy conversation. Last season, Martinez rolled up 295.1 yards of average offense per game, breaking a school record. 

Below is a look at each of the Cornhuskers’ seven home games: 

August 31 vs. South Alabama Jaguars 🎟️

  • Secondary Market average asking price: $179
  • Secondary Market cheapest ticket: $64
  • Primary Market: Starting from $75

The second cheapest game of the season, this will be only the second time these teams have played. They met for the first time in 2015, also at Lincoln, and Nebraska won that game, 48-9. This game is one of two non-conference homes games in 2019. 

September 14 vs. Northern Illinois 🎟️

  • Secondary Market average asking price: $164
  • Secondary Market cheapest ticket: $46
  • Primary Market: Starting from $60

September 28 vs. Ohio State 🎟️

The first Big Ten home game is a doozy. Ohio State is the favorite (again) to win the Big Ten, though this season it will play under new head coach Ryan Day. Expect Ohio State to be even tougher on defense than it has been in the past as Day has revamped his defensive coaching staff. For two well-known teams, Nebraska and Ohio State only began playing each other on a regular basis in 2011. Ohio State has a 6-1 all-time series advantage, including winning the last meeting, November 3, 2018, in Columbus. The only game Nebraska won was in 2011 at home. 

October 5 vs. Northwestern 🎟️

Northwestern enters this game on a two-game win streak, including last season’s 34-31 victory at Evanston. The teams have played 12 times, and Nebraska holds a 7-5 all-time series advantage. The average asking price is the fourth priciest of Nebraska’s home games. 

October 26 vs. Indiana 🎟️

  • Secondary Market average asking price: $182
  • Secondary Market cheapest ticket: $36
  • Primary Market: Starting from $75

This game has the lowest get-in price of any of the games at Memorial Stadium. These teams have played 20 times dating back to 1936, and there have been three ties.

November 16 vs. Wisconsin 🎟️

  • Secondary Market average asking price: $235
  • Secondary Market cheapest ticket: $62
  • Primary Market: Request Only

The third priciest home game, the Nebraska-Wisconsin rivalry dates to 1901, and the winner gets the Freedom Trophy, but the teams have only played 13 times. Wisconsin holds a 9-4 all-time series advantage, including winning the last six. After that 1901 meeting, the teams didn't  play again until 1965.

For the seventh straight season, Nebraska delivered a nine-win campaign, but opted to fire head coach Bo Pelini. Pelini, who went 67-27 as the head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, was unable to win big games and was therefore, relieved of his duties. Under Pelini, Nebraska’s offense averaged 37.4 points per game, which ranked third in the Big-10. Nebraska’s explosive offense can be tied to senior running back, Ameer Abdullah, who ran for 1,523 yards and 18 touchdowns. Abdullah, who is a captivating NFL draft prospect, leaves Nebraska as the all-time yardage leader and the only running back to amass three 1,000-yard seasons. Defensive end Randy Gregory, who is projected to be a Top-10 draft pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, racked up eight sacks during 2014. While the individual efforts of Abdullah and Gregory helped Nebraska to a 9-win season, one opponent’s single-game performance summed up Nebraska’s season. Heading into a pivotal battle against Wisconsin, the 8-1 Cornhuskers were looking to make a statement. Instead, running back Melvin Gordon rushed for a NCAA-record, 408 yards on just 25 carries, enroute to a 59-25 drubbing. This loss further solidified that Pelini could not get this team over the hump.

Heading into the 2015 season, Nebraska is looking for a fresh start from new coach Mike Reilly. Reilly, who previously coached the Oregon State Beavers, has the tough task of rebuilding this program. Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr will return, but Reilly will need to rebuild the playmakers on offense. Abdullah, wide receivers Kenny Bell and Jordan Westerkamp, will all enter the NFL Draft. Gregory’s departure also leaves a big gap on the defensive line. In a highly contested Big-10 conference, Reilly will need to quickly rebuild this proud program.

The current secondary market average price for Nebraska football tickets is $148.42. The most expensive game will come on October 10 against the Wisconsin Badgers. The average price for the game is currently $200.11 with a get-in price of $98.

College football kicks off a week from today, and as they have been doing for almost 75 years, the Associated Press has named a #1. This year's choice was Oklahoma. Despite the chest thumping that erupts each year after the poll is released, the data says Sooner fans need to couch their enthusiasm. Since the AP started naming a pre-season #1 in 1950, only ten pre-season #1's has gone on to win the National Championship. Statistically speaking, that's below the Mendoza line.
