Lincoln Airbnb hosts have earned $205,000 during Nebraska home games this season, up from $101,000 a year ago. 

According to an Airbnb release, the rentals were mainly going to Husker fans but when Colorado was in town, 44 percent were Buffs fans. Colorado was also the game with the most total guests and host income with 440 people coming to town and the hosts making $35,000. That weekend was the largest influx of Airbnb guests to Lincoln in the company's history. 

The game against Minnesota was a close second with 420 guests and $31,000 earned by hosts. Overall, the home games have had an average of 360 Airbnb guests.
