Saturday is expected to be a big night for Arizona State University football as the season home opener against University of Texas San Antonio kicks off from Sun Devil Stadium at 7:30 p.m.

New this season, fans will have to get used to security changes which include a no re-entry policy.

If fans choose to leave at any point of the game, they won't be allowed back in with their same ticket.

Also new, metal detectors placed at each entrance. Unlike other venues, people will not need to take items out of their pockets.

Fans will also notice changes to the east part of the stadium. There are new bathrooms, elevators, seats including benches with backs, fixed seats, a third beer garden, and better Wi-Fi and cell phone service. The student section has also been limited to the lower bowl of the south end zone.
