A Roman Catholic high school in northeast Ohio is requiring students to submit to blood-alcohol-level tests before attending the school's football games.

Students at Akron's St. Vincent-St. Mary High School will be randomly tested after entering football games through a designated gate.

Despite stating that there's been no evidence of alcohol abuse at games, school officials say students who refuse the testing will receive mandatory suspensions.

School officials say only four out of 705 families at St. Vincent-St. Mary have complained about the decision.
