TULSA - The University of Tulsa is rolling out their new security measures this weekend, impacting sporting events.

It’s expected to be a full house for TU'S game against OSU Saturday.

The university is enhancing security by introducing the clear bag policy, something school's across the nation have also implemented.

Just a few months ago, the university announced the new policy, which not only changes the type of bags you’re allowed to take into basketball and football games, but also the size of the bags.

You can no longer bring backpacks, purses, duffle bags, camera and binocular cases, or fanny packs.

Assistant Director of Operations and Game Management said there are different clear bag options to choose from.

“So for this one, it’s a 12 x 6 x 12 and that’s the standard size. Then, we have the approved bag from TU and then there’s a gallon Ziplock bag that’s an option," said Drew Friedman.

There are a few exceptions allowed into games such as small clutches.

Diaper bags and medical bags are also allowed after going through an inspection at the gate.
