Increased security at UF spring football game

By

The annual Orange and Blue football game is the end of spring football practice for the University of Florida. This will mark the coaching debut of Will Muschamp, UF’s new head football coach.

In a news release Friday afternoon, the school has announced it is heightening security in and around Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for Saturday’s Orange & Blue football game, due to the increase in world tensions.

Additional law enforcement officers will be on hand for the game and officers will be monitoring a wider perimeter around the stadium. These measures augment a security plan that the University of Florida Police Department put in place several years ago for large events.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early to their gates and to avoid bringing items prohibited in the stadium such as backpacks or large handbags. Gates open at 10:30 a.m. for the noon game.

Information on expected game day behavior and a list of prohibited items can be found on www.gatorzone.com.
