UNL Investigates Counterfeit Husker Tickets


The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is investigating the large amount of counterfeit tickets sold for the football game between Nebraska and Wisconsin.

At least 16 fake tickets have been turned in to the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office, which is more than the office has seen before for any one game.

UNL Assistant Chief of Police Charlotte Evans says the fans that bought the tickets found them in on Craigslist, an Internet classified advertising site. The ads offered the tickets for $200 each.

Most of the victims reported picking up the tickets on Saturday from a man in Lincoln.

Evans says the large scale of the ticket counterfeiting is new to UNL, but it has happened at other universities.
