BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - With LSU taking on Wisconsin Saturday in the Lambeau Field College Classic, fans attending the game are being reminded of the stadium's carry-in policy.
Fans will have to follow the same policy set at every NFL stadium. The only bags or purses allowed inside must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and no larger than 12" by 6" by 12". Officials add that small clutches that are smaller than 4.5" by 6.5" will also be permitted.
Fans are allowed to being stadium seats and stadium pads that contain no pockets or zippers and are 18" wide or smaller. However, stadium cushions will not be allowed inside the stadium.
According to officials, exceptions will be made for medically necessary items after an inspection which will take place at a separate entrance gate located adjacent to the ticket office at the north end of the stadium.
Fans are advised not to bring items that do not fit specifications. Otherwise, fan must returned them to their vehicles or discard the items at the gates.
Kickoff between the Tigers and Badgers is set for 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Green Bay, WI. Officials recommend that fans allow more time for entering the stadium. Gates will open two hours before kickoff at 12:30 p.m.
To enter Lambeau Field, fans will have walk through metal detectors. However, officials say, unlike with airport screening machines, fans will not have to remove any jackets, belts, coins, keys, wallets, watches, or other objects of similar size.
Fans will instead have to remove cell phones, cameras, tablets and other large metal objects. The items will be placed in a tray alongside whichever machine the fan walks through and will be in clear sight of them.
Fans without bags or stadium seats will be able to go through the detectors using an express lane which can be found at each gate.
LSU fans should also remember that Tiger Stadium will also have a new bag policy for football games starting this year.
