UK bans backpacks at Commonwealth Stadium

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- University of Kentucky football fans will have to leave their backpacks at home.  A new security policy at Commonwealth Stadium bans backpacks and large bags.

Fans are allowed one small bag no bigger than 13.5 by 10.7 inches.  Crews will have sizing bins at the gates to make sure.

The ban starts at the home opener against Miami of Ohio September 7th.

UK officials say it's in response to recent national events and security trends for large gatherings.
