— For fans not on Twitter, the Cotton Bowl is trying to remind people planning to attend Friday’s game between Missouri and Oklahoma State of the AT&T Stadium bag policy, which limits the size and style of bags permitted through security.

It’s an NFL stadium, so the league’s bag policy remains in effect.

That means no purses or other bag larger than a small clutch, that doesn’t exceed 8 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches. Coolers, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, luggage, computer bags, camera bags, binocular cases, diaper bags and seat cushions also are prohibited.

Binoculars may be worn around the neck.

Stadium-approved bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and no bigger than 12-by-6-by-12 inches or one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags are allowed.

An exception is made for medically necessary items after inspection at the gate.
