The Huskers' spring game will be a sellout.

Spring game attendance rankings are always a fun topic in the college football offseason. Typically, these rankings are usually dominated by a couple of schools.

Alabama and Ohio State are usually at the top of the rankings. Here are the biggest crowds ever:

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

As you can see, only one crowd has surpassed the 100,000 mark, and just seven have crossed the 90,000 mark, with Ohio State and Alabama taking up six of those spots.

A new program will probably be added to the list this year - Nebraska. The Huskers should have one of the - if not, the - biggest spring game crowds in the country.

Why? Scott Frost.

No program in the country is more excited for the future than Nebraska. The Huskers have the new head coach they want and he's a hometown kid, having led UNL to a national title while he was QB.

Memorial Stadium boasts a capacity of more than 90,000. It's feasible that the Huskers will have 90,000-plus in the stands come April 11.

Nebraska released today information on the spring game tickets. They'll go on sale next Wednesday and will probably sell out quickly.
