'Wasn't that a bizarre season?' Nebraska AD hopeful 2020 football season an anomaly
Appearing on the “Sports Nightly” radio show on Tuesday night, October 20, Nebraska Director of Athletics Bill Moos touched on several wide-ranging topics, including cardboard cutout fans and the department’s daily coronavirus (COVID-19) testing.
Perhaps the most interesting thing Moos said was when he was asked what fans need to do to return to Memorial Stadium as soon as possible.
“If we can get this coronavirus behind us, we can be talking next year about, ‘Wasn’t that a bizarre season? I’m glad it’s over,’ he said, via Husker247’s Brian Christopherson.
“The best way to do that is to keep our gatherings to as small of groups as possible.”
Later in the interview, Moos also expressed his hope some fans may be able to attend basketball games at Pinnacle Bank Arena this season but acknowledged that decision might be up to the Big Ten Conference, not the university.
The Cornhuskers, entering their third season under head coach Scott Frost, have what is likely the Big Ten’s toughest test up first on their schedule, a trip to Columbus on Saturday to battle the No. 5 Ohio State Buckeyes at 12 p.m. ET on FOX.
Nebraska’s home-opener will come the following Saturday, October 31, Halloween, against the No. 15 Wisconsin Badgers.
