CHAMPAIGN -- Watching the Illini play at Memorial Stadium has never been easier. The university is introducing its new digital ticketing system this season.

Starting at Saturday's season opener, security will scan ticket bar-codes at all entrances. Officials say it will help find counterfeit and stolen tickets. Fans will also be able to print tickets at home after buying them online.
