Fans arriving at Autzen Stadium for an Oregon Ducks college football game will pass through a metal detector screening prior to scanning their ticket to enter the venue. Fans with a bag will undergo an additional inspection at the gate. The bag inspection consists of reviewing if the bag is clear, does not exceed the size limit, and contains no banned items that can’t come inside the arena. If there are any issues with your bag or the things inside, you won’t be allowed to bring it into the stadium for a game.

Is There a Bag Check or Locker Storage Area at Autzen Stadium?

If your bag can’t come into the stadium with you for a game, you must bring it back to your car and leave it there. Remember, traditional backpacks and coolers are fine for tailgating in the parking lots, but they can’t come into the venue with fans for a game. Therefore, plan to leave any non-clear bag in your car after tailgating since they can’t go to the stadium for a game.
