Beaver Stadium To Implement New Security Measures Ahead Of Ohio State Game

New security protocols and procedures will go into effect in Beaver Stadium ahead of this Saturday’s matchup with Ohio State, Penn State Athletics announced Wednesday afternoon.

“Safety is a primary concern at all Penn State Athletics events,” Penn State Athletics wrote in a statement Wednesday. “We are aware of the issues that student fans encountered on Saturday night when entering the bowl of Beaver Stadium via the vomitories.”

This announcement comes after concerns were raised this week over Beaver Stadium’s security failures during the White Out game, which led to an overcrowded student section and dangerous congestion in the entrance portals.

Students who enter through Gate A will now receive a non-transferable wristband which they will be required to show to enter to the student section. This new protocol is designed to ensure that only students are able to go into the student section, limiting the risk of overcrowding.

Penn State Athletics also announced that it will implement an “operational change” in how the student section is filled.

The new procedures will go into effect ahead of this weekend’s matchup with Ohio State and will remain in place for the remainder of the season.
