Lincoln ?The Nebraska football team practiced for two hours Wednesday afternoon in full pads inside Cook Pavilion, as the Huskers continued preparations for Saturday?s showdown at Texas A&M. The game will be broadcast nationally on TBS at 6 p.m.
"Practice went well for us today," Head Coach Frank Solich said. "It was a high-energy practice. We did not have a chance to get outdoors, but that is fine. The heat and conditions in here are probably a little closer to what it is going to be like down at (Texas) A&M, although there is a chance of rain in the forecast."
The Huskers moved inside Cook Pavilion Wednesday, as temperatures hovered in the 30s with light snow falling for much of the day.
"Without this facility (Cook Pavilion), we would really be in a bind," Solich said. "It is tough in terms of the team-work sessions and a lot of guys running around in a very confined space. But we are able to get done what we need to get done. We got a lot of work done today, and we normally do when we can?t get outdoors."
The Huskers will return to the practice field on Thursday before departing for College Station, Texas, on Friday. Coach Solich will be available for interviews following Thursday?s practice.
Nebraska Director of Ticket Operations John Anderson announced on Wednesday afternoon that approximately 600 tickets are available for the Nov. 9 game between Nebraska and Kansas at Memorial Stadium. The tickets were returned from the University of Kansas Athletic Department.
Cost of the tickets is $45 each and they may be obtained by calling 1-800-8 BIG RED or in person at the Athletic Ticket Office, located in the Memorial Stadium parking garage. The tickets may NOT be purchased on-line.
The Nebraska-Kansas game is the Huskers? Homecoming contest and there will also be a Veteran?s Day salute as part of the day?s activities. Game time for the matchup between the Jayhawks and Huskers has not been announced.
