Reports: LSU fans drink Rose Bowl dry of beer before kickoff
It was an issue that was talked about around SEC circles leading up to the game against UCLA in the Rose Bowl, and it came true at least in one section Saturday night.
LSU fans bought so much beer that one section was out of stock before kickoff. It was only a month ago that Rose Bowl officials announced that the stadium would sell alcohol this season. Previously, alcohol sales were prohibited during regular season games at the Rose Bowl.
And the issue was not without precedent.
You may recall LSU fans drank Vanderbilt Stadium dry back in 2019 when the Tigers made the trip to Nashville to face the Commodores. What’s more, the Wall Street Journal once reported that an LSU alum said he told bartenders at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta during SEC championship week, “However much you think you need, double it. And maybe you’ll have enough.”
I was just informed the Rose Bowl has run out of beer in our section.
The teams have not taken the field yet 😬#GeauxTigers
