When the Arizona Wildcats travel to Corvallis to take on the Oregon State Beavers on November 19th, they will encounter something they haven’t seen before at OSU...people drinking alcohol. OSU announced that they are opening a beer garden overlooking the north endzone at Reser Stadium. Only 600 seats are available in this area that will be featuring some of the state’s best craft beers:

"Oregon is recognized all over the world for its incredible culinary excellence and regional, national and international award winning beer, wine and food; it's a natural to combine what this diverse state has to offer with college football Saturdays on this beautiful campus," Athletic Director Todd Stansbury said. "This state is a leader in this country and beyond in food and fermentation science technologies; it's a perfect addition to have world renowned leaders in these industries right here on campus and in this state add to our game-day experience."

Arizona should strongly consider selling alcohol in at least the north endzone, if not the west side as well. All of the sudden you’d have a lot more concession money, and a lot more demand for those seats as well. Hello indoor practice facility
