With 110,319 in attendance for the Michigan-Penn State football game Saturday afternoon, the University of Michigan Department of Public Safety and Security reported four arrests and 32 ejections.

The four arrests were for disorderly conduct and two alcohol-related charges. The ejections were for similar reasons, including possession of another’s identification card and ordinance violation in the stadium.

According to DPSS, there were also two citations during game day for illegal sales.

As well, medical responders treated 76 audience members Saturday, with eight people transported to the University Hospital Emergency Room.

The game, the second to start at 3:30 this year, saw 10 more ejections than last Saturday’s Michigan-Colorado game, which was the first. With 110,042 fans at that game, 83 were treated by medical and five were taken to receive emergency care.

In Michigan’s opening home game against Hawaii, which started at noon, there were 11 ejections for disorderly conduct and alcohol in the stadium. The opening home game started at 12 p.m.
