Penn State to enforce no bags rule at athletic events

Written by The Associated Press | Jun 14, 2013 10:16 AM

(State College) -- Penn State is banning bags from home athletic events this fall.

Penn State says it's prohibiting backpacks, bags and purses from athletic facilities including Beaver Stadium, the Bryce Jordan Center and Rec Hall.

Each fan will be permitted a single clear gallon-size plastic bag for medical and child-care items.

Steve Shelow is assistant vice president for police and public safety. He said Friday that the new policy will add an additional layer of security for spectators and players. He says it brings Penn State into line with the policies of other major universities.

The no-bag rule was first enforced at the Blue-White game in April.
