Clear bag policy will be enforced at Ohio State vs. Michigan State

Monday November 16th, 2015

Only clear bags will be allowed inside of the stadium for Ohio State’s home game against the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday, the school announced Monday.

The implantation of the clear bag policy is a part of the the university’s effort “to continue to provide the safest environment possible” at football games.

The new policy is a concerted effort by the school to enhance security in the wake of Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 129 people. 

Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PCV and do not exceed 14" x 14" and one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags will be permitted into the stadium on Saturday. In addition to the clear plastic bag, small clutch bags about the size of a hand will be allowed into the stadium.

Exceptions will be made for medical reasons.
