ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Athletic Department has been receiving many questions and concerns about this week's activities at Michigan Stadium. With security issues being the main question, we will try to answer those concerns.
With the postponement of the scheduled Sept. 15 game vs. Western Michigan, U-M adjusted two dates on its schedule, moving the WMU game to Sept. 22 and the Illinois game, originally slated for Sept. 22, to Sept. 29. Both are home contests.
All gates will open at 10:10 a.m. for the 12:10 p.m. start. Security measures will be tighter at the entrances. Allow enough time to get through the gates and get to your seat. Keep your seat ticket with you at all times.
The public safety officers will be strictly enforcing the stadium guidelines set forth at the beginning of the season. Check the stadium guide for all information as to what is and what is not allowed into Michigan Stadium. Please do not bring any unnecessary items with you to the stadium.
The FAA has restricted aircraft from flying over Michigan Stadium for this Saturday's game. Check the press release for more information.
This will be the first game at Michigan Stadium since the tragic events of Tuesday, Sept. 11. The Michigan Athletic Department will pay tribute to those whose lives were changed on that tragic afternoon. Check the press releasefor all the activities planned.
