OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Husker Football is one of the many organizations that will likely lose a lot of money due to the coronavirus.

The season is still in limbo, but was scheduled to start Sept. 5. It includes seven home games.

Nebraska Athletic Director, Bill Moos, told our partners at the Omaha World-Herald the university could lose as much as $27 million in game day revenue, and that's if the games are played in front of only 20,000 to 30,000 fans.

If the games are canceled, that figure rises to $35 million per game.
