Texas Longhorns’ Losing Streak Sells A Lot of Beer
The University of Texas Longhorns, as you may know, have not performed that well this year. Understandably, fans of the team have not been very happy about their record. When the team continued their losing streak from last year, alcohol sales at the games rose 70%. That's a Lot!!
These numbers come from a new study released by the University, which shows that alcohol sales at the University netted $3.1 million in revenue this season.
The team ended the season with a 5-7 losing record. They also failed to make it to a bowl game this year. In fact, the team hasn’t made a bowl game appearance since 2013, just before Charlie Strong took over as head coach. After three losing seasons, the school has decided to move forward without Strong at the helm.
The school report also charted which types of beer the fans enjoyed the most this season. Miller Lite took the top prize with over 98,000 beers, and Coors Light was close on its heels at just shy of 96,000 beers. Followed by everybody else.
