Iowa tightens security for Purdue game


In light of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and threats of the same attacks in the United States, many teams are boosting up their security at their games. The NFL announced that they would take extra security measures over the next few weeks, but college teams are joining in as well.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, the Iowa Hawkeyes are one of the latest teams to up their security at their next game. They host Purdue on Saturday and they will have extra security to help out at Kinnck Stadium, including introducing a clear-bag policy.

“The profile is going to be increased. You’re going to see more officers out there. You’ll see them in more obvious areas,” said Dave Visin, UI’s interim assistant vice president and director of public safety.

“We ask everyone for their assistance in making our last home game of the season as safe as possible for all of our friends and visitors. If you see something, say something.”

The game between the Boilermakers and Hawkeyes begins at noon at ESPN2.
