Pittsburg State football fans face new tailgating rules after a fight.

Updated:

Pittsburg State football fans must play by new rules. Saturday marked  the first home game since Pittsburg State University officials announced revisions to the school's tailgating policy. 

Tailgaters will no longer be allowed to consume alcohol after the scheduled kickoff time. 
The changes come after a fight broke out during the home opener.  Although it may cut some gorilla fans grilling and drinking a little short,  some say they think it will help get students and other fans to the game more quickly. School officials agree.
