Boise State, Idaho fans can buy beer before football games

With the trending topic of beer sales at college football games being tossed around and approval from some schools across the country this summer, it is not surprising that we bring you another story of a few more schools doing something similar.

While the schools have not yet approved the sale of alcohol within the stadiums, Boise State, Idaho and Idaho State will now sell beer and wine prior to the start of football games.

According to College Football Talk, fans of the legal drinking age with a ticket to a home Boise State game at Albertsons Stadium will now be able to purchase beer outside of the stadium three hours prior to the game. The beer and wine will be sold inside the Caven-Williams Sports Complex and the drinking area will be restricted to the Complex itself.

Idaho and Idaho State also approved similar requests earlier this week.

The Broncos hope to begin the sale of alcohol as early as this season, but, according to the Idaho Statesman, they will have to work out the logistics and security issues first.

Most football fans like to enjoy a cup of beer or wine prior to the games and while tailgating, so this is a way to introduce the schools to what kind of extra revenue it can bring in. The possibility of more money will always beat out the dangers of binge drinking at games, despite the rules schools have in place for containing alcohol flow.
