STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - With football season right around the corner, colleges in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) are deciding whether they will sell alcohol in their football stadiums this season.
The SEC lifted its ban early this summer and six schools have already announced they will sell alcohol for the 2019 season, according to the Daily Mississippian.
The newspaper reports University of Mississippi interim Athletic Director, Keith Carter, expects school administrators to make a decision soon.
Carter said administration will meet this week and will make an official announcement before the Rebel’s home opener against Arkansas on September 7.
The Daily Mississippian also reports multiple schools in the SEC have already announced they will not sell alcohol at any athletics events.
One of those schools is Mississippi State University.
Some students said they were disappointed in the university’s decision to not sell alcohol at the games this season.
Other students said it’s not that big of a deal, because students can drink at tailgates and pregame before the events.
