Nebraska will again conduct the Drug Free Pledge at this year’s game, and for the second year youth taking the pledge will do so from the stands. This change was put into place beginning in 2016 as a safety measure at Memorial Stadium. Youth eighth grade or younger taking the Drug Free Pledge will be admitted for free, but must secure a complimentary ticket.
UNL students will be admitted for free, but must secure a ticket for admittance. UNL faculty and staff can purchase a reserved ticket for $5 with a staff ID.
