Huskers finalize 2012 schedule, set ticket prices

The NU athletic department set ticket prices for the 2012 season on Thursday and announced the final game this fall as well as several future opponents.

Season ticket holders and UNL faculty and staff will pay the same price for tickets they did in 2011. Public season ticket holders will pay $56 per ticket ($392 for seven home games) and UNL faculty and staff will pay $53 per ticket ($371). Nebraska students will pay $23 per game ($161), up from $21 per game in 2011. The increase is the first for students since 2002.

Rounding out the Huskers' 2012 schedule, Idaho State will come to Lincoln Sept. 22, with time and TV information to follow at a later date.

NU also announced the following games: Florida Atlantic (Aug. 30, 2014), BYU (Sept. 5, 2015) and South Alabama (Sept. 12, 2015, Aug. 31, 2019).

The Idaho State Bengals, an FCS/Division 1-AA team that plays in the Big Sky Conference, finished 2-9 last year, losing 64-21 to Washington State and 56-3 to BYU. In 2009 and 2010, ISU finished 1-10. The Bengals were 1-11 in 2008.
