The Nebraska men's basketball team will play Wayne State College on Nov. 1 in an exhibition game at Pinnacle Bank Arena, the program announced Tuesday.

And the dates for Nebraska's final two nonconference games have been set with both contests set for Saturdays in late December.

The news was part of a release from the Huskers saying that less than 200 season tickets remain following the renewal process. Those tickets go on sale to the general public beginning 10 a.m. Wednesday.

All the tickets are in the 300 level at Pinnacle Bank Arena, with prices starting at $108. Tickets can be purchases by visiting or calling the NU Athletic Development and Ticketing Office at 800-8-BIGRED during business hours.

As for the two nonconference games yet to be announced, the contests will take place Dec. 22, and Dec. 29. NU's opponents for those games should be announced soon.

The two games give Nebraska seven Saturday home games this season, matching a high-water mark for the Huskers since joining the Big Ten. The Huskers also played seven Saturday home games in 2012-13 and 2015-16.
