Containers measuring 10" x 10" will be placed at each entry to Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Purses that do not fit into the container will not be permitted in the stadium.
The containers are the only new part of the policy. The 10"x10" restriction has been in place at the stadium for several years. Restrictions on other items remain the same as outlined on game tickets and the Athletic Department Web site, soonersports.com.
"We are adding the containers to better define the limitations for our fans and simplify the process for our game staff," said Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Programs and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione. "We encourage our fans to bring as little as possible into the stadium to not only streamline their entry, but for everyone's comfort throughout the stadium."
In addition to the containers, signage will be added at numerous outlying locations to remind fans of the prohibited items and the purse size restriction before they reach the stadium gates.
OU and Baylor play Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
