The University of Texas decided recently to sell beer at home football games, becoming the third Big 12 school (Kansas State, West Virginia) with a “wet” stadium.

AMES, Ia. – Expect the Iowa State-Iowa football rivalry to live beyond the date its current contract expires. Both athletic directors, Iowa State’s Jamie Pollard and Iowa’s Gary Barta, want to continue what has been an annual backyard bash since 1977. “Gary and I have spoken several times, and it is my understanding he shares […]
