Luck To Update WVU Board On 1st Year Of Beer Sales

MORGANTOWN, W.V. (AP) - The West Virginia University Board of Governors will hear about the first season of beer sales at Mountaineer Field.

Athletic Director Oliver Luck is attending its Feb. 24 meeting in Morgantown to provide a report the board requested last year when it approved the sales.

The Dominion Post says it's unclear whether any vote will be taken.

WVU will join the Big 12 conference in July, and Luck says it has no rules or regulations regarding beer sales. He said earlier this week that WVU plans to continue what it's doing, as long as the board gives its blessing.

WVU made nearly $520,000 on the beer sales last year.

Luck has estimated that figure could reach as much as $1.2 million, depending on weather, attendance and team performance.
