OSU to begin serving alcohol during spring sporting events as part of pilot program

STILLWATER, Okla. — Cowboy fans may soon be able to enjoy an alcoholic beverage while attending sporting events at the university.

On Friday, Oklahoma State University’s Board of Directors voted to begin a pilot program to serve beer and wine at spring sporting events.

Officials say the process will begin immediately for the university, and staff will need to apply for a license.

OSU’s Deputy Athletic Director Chad Weiberg tells News 4 there will be several stipulations, including making sure staff go through adequate training for safe restrictions.

This pilot program will make OSU the third Big 12 school to serve alcohol during games.

The only other universities in the conference to do so are the University of Texas and West Virginia.

In the past, Oklahoma State’s alcohol policy prohibited people from drinking in the general seating areas of Boone Pickens Stadium.
