Oklahoma State’s concessions partner, Sodexo, will administer all beer sales at sporting events following a successful pilot program at Oklahoma State’s baseball and softball games during the spring.
At football games, beer will be sold at up to 22 locations adjacent to existing concession stands throughout Boone Pickens Stadium. The offerings will include craft selections. Oklahoma State joins Texas and West Virginia as the only Big 12 schools that will allow fans to purchase beer throughout stadiums.

The decision to start selling alcohol in the general areas of the Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium came after the university tested similar sales at other sporting events and in other facilities in 2014.
