After practice this morning, Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos took to the stand today to help clear up the confusion after the Akron game was cancelled last Saturday.
“I’ve always prided myself in being accessible to the media,” Moos said. “I wasn’t hiding under the bed, but I am afraid of lightning,” Moos quipped. In the press conference, Moos confirmed that head coach Scott Frost and the Husker players wanted to play the following morning, however hotel accommodations could not be secured for Akron.
Empty dorm rooms were even considered to help house the Akron football team for the night, but ultimately, plans for the Sunday morning game fell through.
There will be no refund, but fans are being encouraged to hold onto their tickets, as a 12th game may be scheduled during Nebraska’s bye week on October 27th. No specific teams have been lined up for the date, however Moos suggested that it would likely be an FCS team, formerly known as Division 1-AA.
