College Football Notes: Friday Night Pac-12 Games May Hurt High Schools
Published June 3, 2013
FOLLOW THE LEADER: In Austin, Kirk Bohls writes to "look for more schools to follow West Virginia’s lead and start selling beer at their football games." WVU AD Oliver Luck said that the school "generated $750,000 in beer sales last season." Luck added that since WVU started selling beer two years ago, "about five others have joined the club," including Minnesota, UTEP, Toledo and Akron. Texas is "still considering whether to sell beer at Royal-Memorial Stadium" (AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN, 6/3).
LUCK OF THE IRISH: In Orlando, Paul Tenorio reported a UCF-Penn State football game in Ireland during the '14 season is "inching closer to reality." Sources said that a team of four UCF administrators "returned Friday from a four-day trip to Ireland where they met with potential partners for a game." The game is "likely to be held" at Croke Park in Dublin (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 6/1).
