Tonight is the opener for the University of Utah football team. Masks aren't required, but clear bags are. Plan accordingly!
Have you bought your clear bag yet? As a reminder, Rice Eccles Stadium only allows clear bags! Make sure you're ready for tomorrow's game with one of your own.— Utah Red Zone (@UtahRedZone) September 1, 2021

The Storm Prediction Center has us in the marginal risk category, meaning that isolated severe thunderstorms are possible.
If I were attending the game, I would keep this in mind. Things could work out just fine, but if there is a thunderstorm in the vicinity, it is best to take appropriate measures, which likely means moving to a hard-topped vehicle such as your car. Stadiums are generally not safe from lightning, even in covered open-air areas. I always get a pit in my stomach when a thunderstorm is near Rice-Eccles stadium, most recently in September 2019 when there was lightning near the stadium, the camera people left due to lightning concerns, but the game went on (for more see https://wasatchweatherweenies.blogspot.com/2019/09/concerns-about-lightning-safety-at-rice.html).
