Student sections cleared at CU game for tossing debris

BOULDER, Colo. -- Officials ordered two sections full of
students at Folsom Field cleared Friday when debris came flooding
out of the stands during the fourth quarter of a game Colorado was
losing badly to Nebraska.
With Colorado trailing 27-3, water bottles and other junk came
flying from the student sections in the southeast corner of the
stadium.
Play was halted for about five minutes while officials
conferred. Before play resumed, the public address announcer said
sections 116 and 117 would be cleared.
Security staff came to the sections to escort fans out of the
stadium, although the process took a while and there were still
fans remaining in the sections after play resumed.
CU sports information director Dave Plati said the sections are
under video surveillance and fans who were seen throwing things
onto the field could be subject to prosecution.
