Increased security measures are in place for the game today at Penn State following an anonymous bomb threat Friday night for Beaver Stadium, officials said.

The stadium has been secured since Tuesday. Personnel as well as bomb-sniffing dogs did not find anything.

A search was conducted again Saturday morning and still yielded no results.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive at gates earlier than usual as the extra safety measures may delay fans' entrance into the stadium. Inspections will be more deliberate and thorough and the University's regulation on bags will be strictly enforced.

Police and FBI are investigating.

Anyone who sees anything out of the ordinary is urged to contact police immediately by calling 814-863-1111 or 911.
