It’s safe to say that Nebraska football fans are excited for the start of the Scott Frost era.
On Wednesday afternoon, the university announced that the Cornhuskers’ Spring Game had sold out just 90 minutes after tickets had gone on sale.
It is the first time in Nebraska’s history that the spring game has sold out.
Approximately 90,000 fans are expected to be in attendance.
“I want recruits to see that fanbase and see how excited people are and see that environment,” Frost said during an interview on ESPN’s National Signing Day coverage.
You guys aren't messing around.

It’s easy to see why Nebraska fans are excited.
Frost, who is a Nebraska native and served as quarterback of the Cornhuskers’ undefeated team in 1997, takes over for Mike Riley as head coach after coaching the UCF Knights to a perfect record in 2017.
We’ll have to see if Frost is able to work his magic in Lincoln like he was able to in Orlando.
