Officials say the bomb detonated 100 yards west of the stadium near the George Lynn Cross Hall, Botany-Microbiology Building. Explosive experts brought in bomb dogs and located a second device, which was later safely detonated.
Some 84,000 fans were not allowed to leave the game until late in the 4th quarter, after another sweep of the building. The bomb squad also swept the stadium before the game began and found no explosives inside. No one inside the stadium was injured.
Despite the circumstances, the fans remained calm. "It sounded like two explosions very close together," stated one person who heard the blast. "The seats rattled a little bit. We didn't know anything until the game was over."
KFOR-TV supposedly also *showed* a helicopter shot of the non-existent second device *being* detonated last night.
