Oklahoma AD doesn’t want beer sold at Red River Rivalry


The University of Texas is experimenting with beer and wine sales at spring sporting events, and fans seemed to enjoy it. They don’t currently plan on selling alcohol at football games, but it is a possibility depending on how the rest of the spring season goes.

Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione doesn’t want that to extend to their Red River Rivalry game at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

From NewsOK:

Potential beer sales would include Darrell K Royal – Memorial Stadium, but would not cover Texas’ neutral site affair with Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl. The Sooners don’t sell alcohol at their home games, and OU athletic director Joe Castiglione told the Austin American-Statesman they have no plans to engage in talks to do so.

Alcohol isn’t sold in the cotton bowl during the game, you have to exit the stadium into the fair grounds where you can buy and consume beer and then return inside.
