LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska is one of the few Big Ten schools that don’t sell alcohol at sporting events.

But that could change.

The Nebraska Board of Regents will vote on the matter during a meeting on Sept. 30.

If passed, alcohol sales would only be permitted for Husker basketball games at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

This excludes alcohol sales for Nebraska athletic events at places like Memorial Stadium, Devaney Center and Haymarket Park.

There is no word yet if the Regents will consider allowing alcohol sales at all Husker athletic events in the future.

During the upcoming meeting, Regents will also be voting on a Memorial Stadium improvement project and a multi-media rights agreement with PlayFly Sports Properties.

Earlier this year, alcohol was sold for the first time at a Husker athletic event.

Back in March, alcoholic beverages were sold to fans in Pinnacle Bank Arena for the Big Ten Wrestling Championship.

Just a month prior, Regents voted to allow alcohol sales during the event.

At the time, University of Nebraska President Ted Carter said the policy change was a “common-sense first step” in deciding if the school would allow alcohol at future events.
