LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University President Garrey Carruthers is voicing support for the possibility of selling beer and wine during sports events at the Las Cruces school's Pan American Center.
    
According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, that possibility is expected to be up for discussion this fall.
    
Carruthers says selling beer and wine at the center would be a good revenue-maker for NMSU and shouldn't have a downside if handled appropriately.
    
On the other hand, Carruthers says he'd oppose alcohol sales at Aggie Memorial Stadium. He says that's because the university would be liable if people who drink while tailgating before the game purchase a single drink inside the stadium.
    
The Pan American Center is the venue for NMSU home basketball and volleyball games as well as special events.
