Fans can text ‘BRUTUS’ to the number 69050 to receive assistance from stadium personnel. Fans that are “misbehaving, swearing, inebriated” will be dealt with by staff. 

Originally, it was reported that fans could be reported for standing during game play, but Urban Meyer's wife, Shelley, clarified that only unruly fans will be reported.
