Tighter security for Boise game
University of Hawaii and Aloha Stadium officials are working on plans to heighten security at UH's remaining home football games. UH athletic director Herman Frazier and stadium manager Scott Chan are expected to discuss the measures in a joint teleconference today.
Along with the security measures to be in place for the Warriors' home games with Boise State on Nov. 23 and Washington on Dec. 1, UH coach June Jones will tape a public service announcement urging fans to exercise good sportsmanship, and the school plans to reinforce the message through advertisements and its H-Mail program.
The Hawaii-Boise State game has been announced as a sellout.
