    Tickets for Bucknell-Nebraska go on sale Friday

    LEWISBURG, Pa. -- The Nebraska wrestling team, in its first year as a member of the powerful Big Ten Conference, will be making its first-ever trip to Bucknell next month and tickets for the highly anticipated match between the Bison and Huskers in Sojka Pavilion will go on sale this Friday, Oct. 7. Fans wishing to purchase tickets to the Nov. 10 dual match can call the Campus Box Office at 570-577-1000 or visit its website, www.bucknell.edu/boxoffice.

    Tickets for the season-opening dual will cost $8 for adults and $4 for individuals 62 and over and 18 and under. Bucknell students, faculty and staff will be admitted free with ID. All seating will be general admission. Sojka Pavilion doors will open one hour before the 7 p.m. match.

    This will be the third time Bucknell has hosted a premier wrestling event at Sojka Pavilion. The Bison faced 23-time NCAA champion Iowa and Rutgers in a November 2009 tri-meet, and they hosted last March's 107th EIWA Championships, with the facility drawing rave reviews each time.

    Bucknell, which against the Huskers will be wrestling its 100th match since the program was reinstated prior to the 2006-07 campaign, has had at least one All-American in three straight years and has seen a Bison claim an EIWA individual title each of the last two seasons.

    Nebraska, which finished 12th at last year's NCAA Championships, has placed in the top 10 of the team standings at NCAAs six times since 2000 and has had at least one All-American every year since 1989. The Bison and Huskers met last November in Lincoln, Neb., and Bucknell held a one-point lead going into the final bout, but fell by a 19-16 score in the first-ever meeting between the two programs.

    The Bison will have four other home dates (Dec. 3, Dec. 17, Feb. 5, Feb. 12) in 2011-12, with each of those matches taking place in the team's customary home, Davis Gym. All home events in Davis Gym will feature free admission.
