UT to sell alcohol at some sports events

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The University of Texas at Austin will begin selling beer and wine at some athletic events, starting Friday at the Texas softball invitational tournament.

Texas has long banned alcohol sales at athletic events. New men's athletic director Steve Patterson said the school will sell beer and win at the final men's and women's basketball games, softball, baseball and the Texas Relays track event.

Alcohol sales could expand to football in the fall, although the April 19 spring scrimmage at Royal-Memorial Stadium will not be included.

Texas said the athletic department will consult with university police, state officials and the school's concessions contractor to evaluate safety and determine whether alcohol sales will be expanded.
