Penn State responded to a possible threat this morning before today’s game.
Police conducted extensive searches both in the stadium and around the stadium and did not find any evidence of a potential threat.
Fortunately, the Lions declared the stadium was “all-clear” and scheduled to open on time two hours ahead of kickoff.
“Out of an abundance of caution we are notifying fans and the public of the threat that was received, so that they can make their own choices about personal safety and their attendance at today’s game,” David Gray, senior vice president for Finance and Business said in a release. “Our first obligation is to the safety of the public and, while police and safety officials have given an all-clear for today’s game, we wanted to ensure that visitors were aware of this decision.”
The Lions and Gophers are set for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff today. This story will be updated if any other information becomes available.
