The University of Iowa says police charged more than 120 people with various crimes during the Iowa-Iowa State football game on Saturday.

That's nearly three times the number in 2008 when the Hawkeyes last hosted the game. The university released the numbers in the
wake of tighter tailgating rules near Kinnick Stadium this year.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, 82 people were cited for having an open container of alcohol in a public place. Another 23 were cited for public intoxication and 16 for possessing alcohol under the legal age, among other violations.

Two people were charged with drunken driving. A man was charged
with several crimes, including assault on a peace officer, when police say he refused to leave the stadium after causing problems with fans.
