The East Stadium expansion will be complete for the 2013 football season, and Nebraska has announced how fans can go about trying to purchase the added seats at Memorial Stadium.

From an NU release Thursday:

With the expansion of Memorial Stadium for next season, fans are encouraged to apply now at Huskers.com for the rare opportunity to obtain Nebraska football season tickets. Approximately 3,000 tickets will be available to the public, and the process of filling those seats will occur this spring.

Only fans who submit their information to the 2013 ticket wait list will have a chance to become a season ticket holder. Fans should access the Tickets link at the top of the front page on Huskers.com and click on the “2013 Ticket Wait List” link to apply for season tickets, or go to the following link http://bit.ly/YC217g.  A $50 deposit per ticket ordered (which will be applied to the purchase price if approved) is required. More information regarding purchasing new season tickets in Memorial Stadium will be coming soon.

Also from NU:

>> Tickets for the Husker spring game will go on sale next Wednesday at 8 a.m. The Red-White scrimmage is scheduled for April 6.

Fans can purchase tickets at Huskers.com, by phone at 1-800-8-BIG-RED or in person at the NU athletic ticket office, located in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage (8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays).  All spring game tickets are reserved and cost $10 each.

>> Nebraska also has set season ticket prices for 2013 — $56 per game for public ticket-holders ($448 total for eight games), $53 for NU faculty and staff ($424 total) and $23 for students ($184 total). The per-game prices remain the same as they were in 2012.

Single-game ticket prices for 2013 will be $60 each for non-conference contests against Wyoming, Southern Miss and South Dakota State. The non-conference matchup with UCLA and Big Ten home contests against Illinois, Northwestern, Michigan State and Iowa will all be priced at $75 each.
