Arizona State University announced Friday it's considering banning beer kegs for all fans during tailgating parties at home football games.
ASU said the Student Safety Task Force is also looking at other changes, including shorter limits on tailgating and could ban fans from re-entering the Sun Devil Stadium once they leave the game.
ASU Police Chief John Pickens said the possible changes are an effort to reduce binge drinking.
The 15-member task force plans to continue discussions and make final recommendations to the Arizona Board of Regents in late May. The board is expected to vote in June.
The regents announced the creation of the task force last year at the three state universities: ASU, University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University, after a series of alcohol-fueled incidents.
Currently, tailgating is allowed at home football games in university parking lots and structures, beginning 3 1/2 hours before kickoff. Beer and wine can be consumed by adults of legal age, but liquor is not allowed. Alcohol can't be consumed once the game starts or taken into the stadium.
