Everyone wants to see Scott Frost.

Last week, we wrote a post titled "Nebraska's Spring Game Could Be The Most-Attended In The Country." It looks like we're going to be right.

Today, Nebraska started its pre-sale for its spring game. It went very well.

As of 5:30 p.m. E.T., the Huskers had already sold nearly 60,000 tickets to its glorified scrimmage. The exact number: 57,342.

That's a ridiculous number. Several major programs will be lucky to get 2/3 that number come spring game time.

Here are the most-attended spring games of all-time. Nebraska's should come close to these numbers:

2016

Ohio State

100,189

2015

Ohio State

99,391

2009

Ohio State

95,722

2016

Georgia

93,000

2011

Alabama

92,310

2007

Alabama

92,138

2010

Alabama

91,312

Nebraska's Memorial Stadium has a capacity of about 90,000. It's possible that the Huskers could approach a 90,000 attendance number for the spring game - and maybe surpass it - for Scott Frost's debut.

These 57,342 tickets were only sold to season-ticket holders. Tickets to the public will be made available tomorrow.

The spring game is set to take place on Saturday, April 21.
