DALLAS (AP) SMU hosts No. 17 Connecticut this weekend in a renovated basketball arena that for the first time will offer beer for sale.
The Dallas Morning News (http://dallasne.ws/1lEDV1Z ) reports beer sales begin Saturday at Moody Coliseum at the first sporting event since the venue's $47 million upgrade.
Officials with the Methodist university say beer will be sold at men's basketball games and occasional concerts. SMU students age 21 and over will be limited to three beers per game, with stubs on a wristband used to confirm purchases.
Athletics spokesman Brad Sutton says SMU will monitor beer sales and decide whether to expand the offering to Ford Stadium during football season or to other sports events at Moody Coliseum. Alcohol is already permitted in the football stadium's luxury suites.
