Colorado State University is seeking permission from Larimer County to sell full-strength beer at its football games this season.

The Coloradoan reports that Athletic Director Joe Parker says CSU wants to sell stronger beer at Hughes Stadium instead of 3.2, which is currently sold on the concourse level. Regular beer contains about 4 percent alcohol by weight, making it slightly stronger than the 3.2 beer.

Parker says the university's decadeslong stint vending beer has been positive and that the shift to regular beer will put CSU alongside more than 30 others that offer regular beer at games.

Colorado State University will host its last football season at Hughes Stadium this year before games are moved to a new on-campus stadium in 2017.
