Stadium bomb threat received; nothing found

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. –Penn State received an anonymous bomb threat Friday night (Nov. 11) for Beaver Stadium. Police and FBI are investigating. Police, who have had the stadium secured since Tuesday, used bomb-sniffing dogs as well as additional personnel to check the stadium and nothing was found. They searched the area again this morning, and again found nothing.

Anyone who sees anything out of the ordinary is urged to contact police immediately by calling 814-863-1111 or 9-1-1 or approaching any of the officers on duty in and around the stadium today.

There are increased security measures in place for today's game. Fans are encouraged to arrive at gates earlier than usual as the extra safety measures may delay fans' entrance into the stadium. Inspections will be more deliberate and thorough, and the University's regulation on bags will be strictly enforced.
