Saturday's Football Game Officially Sold-Out

Nov. 4, 2005

LAWRENCE, Kan. — The Kansas Athletics ticket office announced this afternoon that Saturday’s KU vs. Nebraska football game is officially a sell-out. The Jayhawks and Cornhuskers will kickoff from Memorial Stadium (capacity 50,071) at noon. The Jayhawks and Cornhuskers own the longest uninterrupted series in NCAA I-A history (99 games) as the two teams have faced each other every year since 1906.

The Jayhawks, who feature the second-best rush defense in the NCAA, enter the contest versus Nebraska looking to post their fifth win of the season in Memorial Stadium. The Jayhawks also won five games at home during the 2003 season — Mark Mangino’s second year as head coach of the team. Prior to his arrival at Kansas, the last time KU won at least five home contests was 1999.

The Cornhuskers enter the game against the Jayhawks looking to snap a current two-game slide which includes losses at Missouri (24-41) and at home versus Oklahoma (24-31). Nebraska has lost three of its last four outings after opening the season with a 4-0 mark
