AUSTIN, Tx. - The University of Texas is evacuating its entire campus after a bomb threat Friday morning.

According to KXAN in Austin, UT received a phone call around 8:35 a.m. from a male with a middle eastern accent saying he placed bombs all over campus. He said he was with Al Qaeda and the bombs would detonate in 90 minutes.

The campus emergency alert website posted at 9:53 a.m. read, "Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible."

Shortly after, news broke of another bomb threat at North Dakota State University. 

According to ABC News , the threat this morning caused an evacuation. Everyone was told to evacuate campus by 10:15 a.m.
