May 10 (UPI) -- The Oklahoma Sooners are expected to join the growing list of college football programs that sell alcohol at football games.
The University of Oklahoma Board of Regents officially passed a recommendation for the sales and advertising of alcoholic beverages at all Sooners athletic events, according to the Tulsa World.
Oklahoma experimented with alcohol sales during basketball games last season. Fans were paying $8 for a 16-ounce can and $8.50 for a 20-ounce draft.
The Tulsa World said similar prices are expected at Sooners games this fall.
More than 50 FBS programs sell alcohol at football games. Oklahoma's Big 12 rival, West Virginia, started selling alcohol at football games in 2001.
Oklahoma begins its season Sept. 1 when the Sooners host Houston at Memorial Stadium.
