PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) Pittsburg State University tailgaters will no longer be able to drink alcohol after the scheduled kickoff time.
The school has changed its tailgating policy after a parking lot altercation during the Sept. 8 home opener. School officials say no one was injured but the situation had the potential to be dangerous.
Afterward, university officials reviewed the school’s tailgating policy. Pittsburg State President Steve Scott said the school also has determined enforcement should begin earlier in the day and be more stringent.
Upon arrival, tailgaters will be provided with a list of policies and bags for litter. Tailgaters and others attending the game also will be able to use a texting service to point out trouble.
