Tiger Stadium will now sell beer and wine in its public spaces, according to a university press release.

The SEC recently lifted its ban on alcohol sales, permitting each of its member schools to decide whether or not they would follow suit.

Alcohol is also expected to be made available in public areas of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and Alex Box Stadium, coming this basketball and baseball seasons, respectively.

"This is all about enhancing the fan experience, responding to the feedback from our fans and doing it responsibly," said LSU athletic director Scott Woodward in the release. "It's a big addition to our events and we believe it will be a positive one overall, but we are going about it with the appropriate mindset and thorough planning."

According to the new release, LSU will sell a variety of domestic and imported beers, in addition to selections of red and white wines.

Concessions near the student section will not sell alcohol. Fans over 21 can purchase no more than two beverages at once, and all alcohol sales will close at the end of the third quarter.

LSU also plans to implement a designated driving program called "Safe Driver Tiger," through which fans can register as a group's safe driver.

"You know, two beers and a hot dog at a football game? That's a healthy experience," SEC commissioner Greg Sankey told The Advocate during SEC media days. "Twelve beers and a hot dog at a football game? Not so healthy. So we do have an expectation of both campus and individual responsibility now that this opportunity can be presented."
