Folks from Giles County traveling to the Alabama-LSU football game should know that heightened security is changing the screening process at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday.

Ticket holders are encouraged to get in the entry line no later than 1:00 p.m. on game day, according to a press release from the University of Alabama.

Gates will open at 11:30 a.m., three hours before kickoff, to help accommodate the crowds.

Organizers say that football fans need to prepare to empty pockets, take off pinned on buttons and large jewelry before entering the stadium. This process will be similar to airport security although attendees can keep shoes and belts on.

Security recommend leaving non-essentials at home or in vehicles.
