University of Tennessee officials are warning students at the school to take extra precautions for their safety after several students were sexually assaulted at Neyland Stadium during the Alabama game on Oct. 15. 

According to WVLT, a student reported a sexual assault to Campus Security Authority on Tuesday. 

“While at Neyland Stadium on Saturday, October 15, the student along with their group of friends were groped while walking to their seats,” the email reads. “The student reported while in their seats they witnessed others being assaulted within the same section. Other CSAs on campus have received reports of a similar nature.”

None of the incidents were reported to campus police. 

“In an effort to provide timely and accurate information to our students, staff, and faculty members, the following information is being provided to you so that you can make informed decisions about your safety,” officials said in the email.

The university added that if you are attacked, students should get to a safe place and contact law enforcement immediately. UT also offers resources for those who are attacked on its Title IX website.
