In order to decrease wait time for bag checking and improve safety at Football games, the NFL instituted a clear bag policy in 2013. This policy came on the heels of the tragedy at the Boston Marathon.
Due to all of the tragedies over the past year, colleges such as UCLA, Mississippi State, and Auburn are implementing clear bag policies for all college football games for the 2016 season. Many other schools have or will be following suit all over the United States, not just at colleges, but for High School football games.
Mississippi State’s rules say the clear bag must be no bigger than 12”x6”x12” or you can bring in a One-Gallon clear re-sealable bag such as a zip lock bag. Don’t worry though, ladies, you can still bring your purse provided it isn’t any bigger than 4.5” x 6.5”! The rules say that you can bring in a camera or binoculars provided you carry them in and they are not in a bag.
They are changing the rules on the containers but you can still bring in the same types of items that you have in the past. Just know the rules before attending your next college or professional sporting event!
