ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico casino has made the decision to accept bets on collegiate football and basketball games involving in-state teams.

The Albuquerque Journal reported Tuesday that Isleta Resort & Casino will accept wagers on the University of New Mexico Lobos and New Mexico State University Aggies beginning this upcoming season.

Casino officials say the decision means bettors can gamble on the outcome for the two New Mexico teams when they compete against another Football Bowl Subdivision level opponent.

University officials say sports gambling is a NCAA violation and a major concern because people could begin communicating outcomes with student-athletes, coaches and staff.

Officials say sports gambling in New Mexico has been legal for two years, but Isleta would be the first to accept bets on in-state collegiate sports year-round.
