Kansas jumping on the alcohol sales bandwagon
Between half of the Big Ten allowing sales, the SEC rescinding its moratorium, the state of North Carolina dropping its ban at universities, several Big 12 programs already serving and now KU, this trend is quickly accelerating.

A quote:

Quote:Kansas athletic director Jeff Long said the sales will begin with the season opener Aug. 31 against Indiana State. It is an expansion of a trial program in various venues, including Memorial Stadium, where alcohol has been served in suites and premium seating areas.

“Our research and that of others indicates that not only does alcohol availability promote attendance and improve the game-day experience for fans, it has the potential to reduce alcohol-related incidents in and around the venue,” Long said.

At least it will be a consolation to Jayhawks fans going into the 3rd and 4th quarters.

Just wait until it's 56-6 in the 4th quarter, and they go up to the concourse, and find out beer sales were cut off at the end of the 3rd quarter.
