Commonwealth Stadium practicing new security measures

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - We've been tracking new security trends at stadiums across the county. Saturday, officers at Commonwealth put into practice their new security measures.

The new rules regarding security at Commonwealth Stadium have a lot of fans reevaluating what they take in to a game.

"I did make sure that my bag fits the measurements. I looked them up online, so I think I'm good to go," noted fan Eileen Gerichs.

Bags brought in must now be much smaller. This, at the University of Kentucky, is in response to a lot of larger arenas and other college football stadiums putting similar security measures in place.

"I don't know that it'll make it any safer. It'll probably make people be a little more creative with the way they bring their things in that they want," said fan Matt Moss.

Some fans, like Moss, do fear they'll be waiting in line longer, but security assured us the changes are supposed to help fans get into the game faster.
