DALLAS (AP) — In a story June 25 about beer sales at SMU football games, The Associated Press erroneously reported the stadium's name as Gerald R. Ford Stadium. It is called Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

A corrected version of the story is below:

SMU to begin beer sales at fall football games

SMU expanding beer sales to include football games, sales at basketball games began in January

DALLAS (AP) — 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 that 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, a venue that seats about 32,000, will also be carefully designed and vetted. He declined to release details.

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