NC State increases security measures for final 2 games

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina State has announced increased security precautions for its final two games against Syracuse and North Carolina.

The school issued a news release Thursday saying it would open games two hours before kickoff, up from 90 minutes to allow time for increased security screening. North Carolina State also asked fans to arrive 30 minutes earlier than usual.

North Carolina State says there will be ''an increased security and law enforcement presence'' inside and outside of the stadium, including in parking lots. The school also says there are additional measures being taken, though it won't specify those publicly.

The announcement comes roughly a week after attacks in Paris killed 129 people, though the school noted the Department of Homeland Security says there are currently no known threats against college stadiums.
