WVU Nets More Than $75,000 From 1st Beer SalesMORGANTOWN, W.VA. (AP) - Beer sales at West Virginia University football games are a hit with fans.
Media outlets report that WVU netted more than $75,000 from the first round of beer sales during the Mountaineers' season opener against Marshall on Sunday.
Beer was the most popular beverage sold by vendors at Milan Puskar Stadium.
The university says fans bought 21,811 bottles of beer, 18,803 bottles of water, 2,906 bottles of soda and 8,908 cups of frozen lemonade from vendors.
WVU Police Chief Bob Roberts says unruly fan behavior didn't increase, or decrease, with beer sales.
Excluding beer, concessions sales were a record $548,000.
WVU's Board of Governors voted in June to allow concession operator Sodexo to sell beer up until the halfway point of the third quarter.
