SMU allowing beer sales for upcoming season

Written By Associated Press

SMU has decided to allow beer sales at football games after similar offerings this year at basketball games.

Athletic department spokesman Brad Sutton said Wednesday the plan is to sell beer at Gerald J. Ford Stadium starting this fall. Alcohol is already permitted in stadium luxury suites.

Beer sales began Jan. 4 at basketball's Moody Coliseum. SMU students age 21 and over were limited to three beers per game, with stubs on a wristband used to confirm purchases.

Sutton says the plan for Moody Coliseum was safe and successful. He says the process for beer sales at Ford Stadium, which seats about 32,000, will also be carefully designed. He declined to release details.

The Mustangs open their home schedule Sept. 20 against Texas A&M.
