The Texas Longhorns kick off the 2017 football season this Saturday against Maryland at Royal-Memorial Stadium, but fans accustomed to attending games at DKR will encounter a new stadium rule: the only bags allowed in the stadium (and in the Frank Erwin Center) are small, clear plastic bags.
The bags, which can be no larger than 12 inches wide, 12 inches tall and six inches across when fully opened, are meant to enhance safety measures in place at Texas’ two largest sports arenas.
Wondering where to purchase said bags? Austin360.com has rounded up locations where you can find everything from affordable and useful bags to fashionable, cute ones that fit within the restrictions.
