PLYMOUTH - Riot-like scenes have played out on New Hampshire campuses in the past following a major sporting event.
The word of these gatherings often spreads on social media. That's why Plymouth State University staff will be keeping tabs on it as the Super Bowl approaches.
"We have a team of people who monitor the social sites regularly and were just looking for those types of messages that would bring a large crowd to a specific location," said Jim Hundrieser of Plymouth State University.
Hundrieser said the method allows the university to identify students who might be trying to stir up trouble.
"If we were to see a message like that we would reach out to those students immediately to remind them of state and local laws and also university policies that they might be potentially at risk or in violation of," said Hundrieser.
Law enforcement will also be ready for what may come this Sunday following the Super Bowl.
"We have a contigent of troopers assigned to both Plymouth University and also over at university of New Hampshire," said Capt. Gary Wood of New Hampshire State Police.
All of these efforts are designed to keep a huge night in the sports world from turning into big problems on Granite State campuses.
