Few places are drier than Texas during the summer. Except fall at University of Texas football games, where booze wasn't allowed inside the stadium -- until now.
University of Texas Athletics announced Wednesday that beer and wine will be sold at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium for home football games this year, starting with the home opener against Rice on Sept. 12th. Finally, someone realized college football and drinking go together like... hell, they go together better than peanut butter and jelly. Why do you think there are so many college football games?
The decision comes after "thoughtful discussions" (probably about how great beer and football are) between President Gregory Fenves and Chancellor Bill McRaven. And apparently, the decision doesn't require approval from the UT System Chancellor or Board of Regents, according to the announcement. Although, it's still unclear exactly who drinks wine at football games.
