    Plan Ahead For Iowa State-Nebraska Volleyball Match

    AMES, Iowa Ė Saturday will be a busy day at Iowa State, with a football showdown against No. 18 Oklahoma State kicking off at 2:30 p.m., followed by the highly anticipated top-10 volleyball battle between the eighth-ranked Cyclones and No. 10 Nebraska at 8 p.m. in Hilton Coliseum.

    ISUís Athletics Department is encouraging fans to buy your tickets ($5 adults/$4 youth) to the volleyball match in advance to avoid expected long lines. A number of options are available for those wishing to purchase tickets in advance:

    - Tickets are available online 24 hours a day at ticketmaster.com.
    - Tickets are available until 5 p.m. today by calling the ISU Athletics Ticket office (1-888-478-2925).
    - Before the football game, tickets can be purchased from the north (north of Gate 1) and south (Gate 3) ticket trailers, which open at 9:30 a.m.
    - The main athletics ticket office will sell tickets following the football game.
    - The Hilton Box Office will open at 6:30 p.m. There will also be a ticket trailer outside the Hilton Box Office selling tickets, but purchases will be cash only.

    Re: Plan Ahead For Iowa State-Nebraska Volleyball Match

    Going to my first VB game since high school tomorrow night and have a few questions for those in the know...

    With GA seats how early should you get there to get decent seats?

    How does parking work for this? Personally going to the FB game and have a C5 parking pass, so I plan to tailgate after the game. However, we are meeting up with some friends that aren't going to the FB game.

    No, I'd guess somewhere around 3-4k.

    Re: Plan Ahead For Iowa State-Nebraska Volleyball Match

    I've never watched college volleyball and I'm going with 3 other who are in the same boat. My guess is well over 4k (which was the attendance for the Texas match).

    BTW, Ticketmaster is a joke...you'll end up paying about 50% of the ticket value in fees.

    I'll take a stab and say they get over 5K. NU coming to town (there were about 10 Longhorn fans there Wed) coupled with the euphoria of a win over OSU earlier in the day.

    Re: Plan Ahead For Iowa State-Nebraska Volleyball Match

    It's been said that Nebraska fans will attend in the thousands and will line up early to get the best GA seats.

    I do know that Nebraska does take it's WBB very seriously so I wouldn't be surprised if the first two statements are true; especially since they were beaten at home. I can see revenge swelling their ranks. I would not be surprised to see 8-9,000 people attend though it would be hard to guess which team would have the most fans.

    Last year's match set the Hilton record (6700) and I'd say two-thirds of that crowd was made up of Nebraska fans.
    So, yeah, I'd bet they are coming in droves...

    2 things:

    Nebraska vs Oklahoma: Football, 7pm, on ABC.
    ISU beats NU in Volleyball 2 weeks ago in LINCOLN

    Those (2) items will greatly reduce the Big Red Fan Base. I hope we get 10,000, most of them will be ISU fans.

    While Nebraska fans are generally front runners their allegiance and willingness to travel will be tested Saturday. While neither FB or VB program is having the success they expect, the VB team is still head and shoulders above the shambles that is sker FB. But they play (get exposed I mean - 3 home losses in a row!) Oklahoma on Saturday night in Lincoln. They will still have plenty of fans in Ames, but their FB game will reduce that number, to what extent is the question.

    I'm guessing it's going to be somewhere around 7,000. It was a little over 4,000 for the texas game and hilton was rocking. I can't wait for tomorrow night.
