Fans who have a Red-White Spring Game ticket can use it for a free general admission ticket to any remaining regular-season home baseball or softball game. Following the announcement at Memorial Stadium that Saturday’s game was canceled, fans at the stadium were treated to free concessions and many of the Husker players signed autographs for fans who were in the Memorial Stadium concourses.
Athletic Director Tom Osborne commented after Saturday’s cancellation.

Head coach Bo Pelini said holding the scrimmage on Sunday was not an option and they’ll just move forward with 14 official practices under their belt.
“When we met with the team, there are a lot of issues that come with playing Sunday. You’re talking about group projects, academic things, a banquet and logistical issues with their family. In the end, that wasn’t going to work. As much as I think everybody would like for that to happen,” said Pelini. “With the situation, I think we’ll just move on and go to the next step. We have some things planned for them next week lifting-wise and getting into their offseason conditioning. I think that is the route we’re going to go. It’s not going to make or break us one way or another in that situation. It’s not going to disrupt anything that we have scheduled and planned heading into the next phase of our offseason for one practice. To be honest, you worry about the mindset of your players at that point and how much you’re going to get out of it. I don’t want to deviate from the plans we set up at that point.”
