NASHVILLE, TN (WAVE) - When the Kentucky Wildcats square off against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers in Nashville Saturday night fans attending the game will face the same security procedures NFL fans will this season.

Although the game is a home game for the Hilltoppers, it will be played at LP Field, home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans. That's means the new NFL bag policy will be in effect. Here's a summary of the policy supplied by WKU Athletics and the Titans.

Each fan may carry in their pocket items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets, and credit cards, and may also continue to carry a blanket or jacket into the stadium.

Fans may carry in a small clutch bag or purse approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap.

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" by 6" and 12" or
  • A one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items, including seat cushions, after proper inspection at Gates 1, 5 & 7 designated for this purpose.
  • Diapers and wipes must be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, will be able to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse, providing ample storage capacity.
