Last month, parts of Nebraska and other surrounding states were devastated by flooding. The Huskers are taking their spring tour, "Big Red Blitz," through some towns that felt the impact of the floods.

Football coach Scott Frost and newly hired men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg will both be in attendance, along with athletic director Bill Moos. Nebraska announced a few stops today.

On May 30, the "Blitz" heads to Divots Conference Center in Norfolk at 12:30 p.m. local time. At 3:30 p.m., the group will stop at Christensen Field Arena in Fremont.

Both of those events are free, and have capacities of 800 attendees.

That night, fans can pay to attend a ticketed Nebraska "Big Red Blitz" event at the Strategic Air Command Museum in Ashland.

Tickets are available at Nebraska's website.

More on the events from Moos, via the Omaha World-Herald:

“In Nebraska our greatest resource is our people," Moos said in a press release. "That has never been more evident than citizens and communities coming together with great resilience after the devastating March floods. We hope our Nebraska coaches and staff heading out to parts of the state that were affected will help play a small part in the continued healing and recovery.”

Our thoughts continue to go out to those impacted by the floods.
