New Rules for Red Raider Fans

Fans will not be allowed on the field after the football game this Saturday.  That's the message, Texas Tech University is trying to get out to fans.  

Texas Tech is complying with a new Big 12 rule that does not allow fans on the field as in years past.  If fans do rush the field, they face possible ticket restriction or may be barred from the field. 

Football players have also been instructed to leave the field after the game and not give out autographs.  The rule goes into effect at this Saturday's game against Southern Methodist University. "We will have additional security on the field to help with this issue and we'll have campus police and police to help us control," says Gerald Myers, TTU Athletic Director.  

Next football season, another rule will go into effect.  Starting in 2004, fans will not be allowed to re-enter the stadium once they leave the game.
