TROY, Ala. (AP) - Troy University is joining a growing number of colleges selling beer at football games.
University officials say beer will be available Saturday for the Trojans' game against Duke. But fans in Veterans Memorial Stadium will have to show proper identification and get a wrist band. Officials say customers can purchase no more than two beers at one time and beer sales will be halted at the end of the third quarter.
Athletic Director John Hartwell says the sales will be monitored to make sure the stadium remains fan friendly and family friendly.
University officials tell WDHN-TV (http://bit.ly/1nYcP7u ) that each beer will cost $5 and the university will get a little more than $2 from each sale.
Troy is among more than 20 universities selling beer at games to generate revenue.
