Fans can watch the first Husker football game of the season Oct. 24 on the video boards at Pinnacle Bank Arena. 

Kickoff for Nebraska's game at Ohio State is 11 a.m. Doors to the arena open an hour earlier.

Specials will be offered at the concession stands: $3 hot dogs; $3 Busch Light and $4 selected domestic beers until kickoff. After that, prices go up to $4 for Busch Light and $5 for 16-ounce domestic beers.

There is no admission cost.

"Fans can watch the game in a fun and safe atmosphere to allow for social distancing," said Tom Lorenz, the arena's manager.

All those attending need to bring their own face covering, which must be worn other than when eating or drinking.

Clear bags and small clutch-sized purses only are allowed at entry. 

Scott Holmes of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department said the arena has successfully and safely held events during the pandemic, including Lincoln public high school graduation ceremonies and a two-day rodeo. 

Health Department staff will ensure attendees wear masks and socially distance themselves, he said.
