Pokemon Go is sweeping the nation and even sports teams are getting in on the biggest mobile game in America. Most sports teams are joining the Pokemon Go wagon with silly tweets or memes, but a few sports teams are showing their true dedication to Pokemon by opening their stadiums up to trainers.
The University of Nebraska, Texas Tech University and Texas A & M University opened their football fields up to students this week so Pokemon Go players could grab some Growlithes and Gyrados on the gridiron. From the looks of this tweet, the Texas A & M outing was pretty popular:
At least one baseball team got in on the Pokemon Go paegentry, as well. The minor league Columbus Clippers placed lures at several PokeStops within the stadium and opened up their outfield for fans to visit during lunch hours.
However, at least one sports program isn't thrilled about Pokemon Go. The Ohio State University football program warned students to stay away from Ohio Stadium. Throwing salt in the wound, an OSU assistant coach then posted a video of OSU quarterback JT Barrett pegging a Pikachu with a football.
Pokemon Go is available in the United States, Australia, Germany, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
