The University of Minnesota Police Department resolved a bomb threat investigation at TCF Bank Stadium, according to a University spokesperson Thursday afternoon.

According to the spokesperson, the threat was called in at around 1:15 p.m. UMPD officers — along with their K-9 detection unit — swept the building and did not find anything relevant to the threat. 

According to an initial all-campus alert, sent at around 1:30 p.m., the building was evacuated of those preparing for a football game Friday. A second alert, sent about an hour later, notified the campus community of “the all clear.”

The game against the University of Iowa Hawkeyes will continue with regular security protocols tomorrow.
