LSU athletic director eyes beer garden at Tiger Stadium

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Louisiana State University is eyeing an outdoor beer garden for its football stadium, but the idea would have to pass muster with the Southeastern Conference.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2c7Nwnv ) that LSU athletic director Joe Alleva said during a pregame radio show Saturday that the university has ''some concepts on the board'' for adding food courts and possibly an outdoor drinking area at Tiger Stadium. He said those ideas are ''are on the horizon.''

Under SEC rules, alcohol sales at the stadium are currently limited to suites and other premium seating areas.

Alleva says expanded beer sales would boost revenue and attendance and could make it less likely that fans binge drink before they enter the stadium.
