While college football fans have long found creative ways to catch a buzz during pre-game tailgate parties, the taps usually shut off once they arrive at their seats.
But more and more college football stadiums are now serving beer, with Southern Methodist, North Texas and Alabama's Troy University pushing the figure to 21 schools which have authorized beer sales in their on-campus venues (11 schools serve beer at off-campus stadiums).
Interestingly, when West Virginia started serving beer inside its stadium in 2011, alcohol-related incidents at Mountaineer Field went down dramatically, as fans got a lot less loaded prior to games.
So what do you think? Should college stadiums continue to serve alcohol as a means to get more fans into the seats?
