ASU Bans Kegs Before Football Games

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Kegs will no longer be part of the tailgating scene at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

Arizona State University and ASU Athletics announced in a statement Thursday that kegs and any apparatuses that encourage "reckless consumption of alcoholic beverages" will be banned from certain parking lots.

Games such as beer pong or flip cup as well as devices such as beer bongs will be prohibited.

School officials say the restrictions are being put in place because of safety concerns.

Tempe and campus police will enforce the new tailgating restrictions.

ASU football game attendees typically tailgate in the parking lots surrounding the stadium, which opens up to five hours before game time.

The University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University already enforce the same policy.
