U. of Minnesota tackles stadium misbehavior with breath tests

September 18, 2009

Students who get kicked out of a University of Minnesota football game for drunken rowdiness won't be allowed back next time unless they pass an alcohol breath test at the gate.

The new Check BAC policy applies to the 10,000 student season-ticket holders and is modeled after a program started five years ago at the University of Wisconsin.

The sale and possession of alcohol are banned at the Golden Gophers’ brand-new 50,000-seat TCF Bank Stadium.

Student season-ticket holders who get ejected from one game and want to attend another must go through a special gate where a breath test is administered.

The policy has created few complaints from fans.
