The University of Alabama says it will test the use of metal detectors at Saturday's football game against Mercer at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The trial will include walk-through metal detectors and wands at selected gates around the stadium, and will be used to enforce existing rules for prohibited items. Those items include weapons, umbrellas, artificial noisemakers, flags/banners, strollers and computers.
Guests will be asked to remove any metal objects from pockets or clothing before going through the detectors. Guests with prohibited items will have to dispose of them or return the items to their cars before entering the stadium.
UA says measures will be in place to ensure smooth flow at gates. Saturday's game begins at 11 a.m.
