It's been almost nine months since Mountaineer fans have seen a game at Milan Puskar Stadium. That changes on Saturday when the Mountaineers open their season against William and Mary.

About 60,000 fans are expected to pack into the stadium.

WVU Police Chief, Bob Roberts told 5 News security hasn't changed much since the team's game against Kansas last December. He said the only thing fans will notice different is a few extra gates that'll let them into the game.

Roberts said police have been preparing for the season opener for a couple months. He said they'll have some officers from all over the state at Saturday's game.

Roberts mentioned fans should have fun, but they need to be responsible for their actions.

"If you're coming to the game we encourage you not to bring any big bags because they're not allowed in (the stadium)," he said. "Obviously you're not allowed to bring alcohol into the stadium."

Roberts also said if fans see anything out of the ordinary they're asked to get ahold of police.
