Officials Make No Changes to Griz Game Security

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The first home Griz football game of the season has already come and gone this past weekend, and security at the door caused some confusion for people trying to enter Washington-Grizzly Stadium.

Associate Athletic Director Chuck Maes said some event staff informed game-goers they would not be able to bring in water bottles, thermoses, purses or other bags.

However, Maes said the rules have not changed, and people entering the stadium are still allowed to bring in belongings -- within reason.

Maes said glass and metal water bottles or thermoses and large bags are not allowed inside the stadium.

Maes said, "A bigger concern for us is making sure you're not impacting the safety of your neighbors, so they can easily exit, get back and forth, you're not blocking any of the through ways or the aisles, so that's the major concern."

Maes said the first Griz game was a big success overall, with no major security issues to report.
