Last year’s rules on fans bringing seat cushions and chair backs into Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium will be in place Saturday, University of Oklahoma President David Boren announced Friday.
New rules, which limited the size of purses brought into the stadium and prohibited fans from bringing seat cushions, were scheduled to be enforced for Saturday’s 6 p.m. season opener against Louisiana-Monroe.
Purses must still be 10 inches by 10 inches or less, but fans will be permitted to bring seat cushions and chair backs smaller than 16 inches and without armrests.
The OU statement said the regulations would undergo further review.
“The University does not want to unduly inconvenience fans,” the statement said.
Empty clear personal water bottles, approved medical devices, approved family care items (diapers, formula, etc., in a bag that fits the purse regulations) are allowed.
Any other bags or backpacks, including string-cinch bags and merchandise bags will not be allowed.
Tickets for the game, which will be televised on pay-per-view, remain available at SoonerSports.com.
