Fans will now be more limited as to what they can bring into Beaver Stadium while watching football games.
Penn State has implemented a limited-bag policy at all home athletic events, similar to the bag policy created by the NFL at all of its venues to improve security.
One clear, plastic one-gallon bag per person will be permitted for medical needs, child-care needs and some general items.
Items that can fit in a pocket should remain there (keys, cell phone, wallet, glasses, camera, sunscreen, etc.) These types of items also may be placed in a gallon plastic bag. All bags will be inspected through “check stations” as in prior years.
Fans are still permitted to bring blankets, seat cushions, iPads and other mobile devices and binoculars, as well.
However, rigid-frame baby and toddler carriers and strollers are not permitted.
And no other types of bags are permitted, including backpacks, fanny packs, purses, diaper bags or camera bags. Check out the complete university press release here.
Fans attending the Eastern Michigan game on Saturday also will notice a few stadium upgrades, including a Distributed Antenna System for AT&T’s wireless network and the addition of a fan experience mobile app.
Game day parking lots will open at 7 a.m. Saturday and the team will arrive at the stadium south tunnel at about 9:30 a.m. The student gate will open at 10 and the public stadium gates will open at 10:30.
