MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A new report finds selling beer and wine on game days has not caused a rise in rowdy behavior at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.
The report shows that the number of alcohol-related incidents at the football stadium was lower in 2013 than 2010 — two years before alcohol sales began.
University Vice President Pamela Wheelock says beer and wine sales have not been the problem that some might have expected.
The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1iT7lKx ) reports that university officials want to continue the sales after a two-year pilot project ends in July. The plan must be approved by the Minnesota Legislature.
The report found that 59 alcohol-related incidents were reported in the 2013 season, compared with 77 in 2010.
