2017 Mustangs Season Preview
In 2015 the SMU Mustangs experienced an eight-game losing streak midway through the season, as well as a disappointing overall score of 2-10. Chad Morris will be starting his second season with the Mustangs as head coach in 2016. With more experienced players returning, Morris has hope that in 2016 SMU will make some improvements and get their first bowl invite since 2015. It will be crucial for SMU to maintain a successful running game; with Xavier Jones and Braeden West returning as experienced sophomores, this is possible. Top games on the SMU Mustangs 2016 schedule are in Dallas against TCU and Navy and on the road at Baylor. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Mustangs at home games or supporting SMU on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all SMU Mustangs’ tickets, including home and away games.

SMU vs. TCU
The biggest college football rivalry in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex pits these two athletic and academic powerhouses against each other. The two schools first met in 1915 and have played in all but 6 years since then. The winner of the game has been awarded the Iron Skillet Trophy since 1946, after a TCU fan confronted and made a wager with a SMU fan after seeing him grill frog legs in a skillet. These schools compete for players, students, fans, and much North Texas football pride.
SMU vs. Rice
Two of the most accomplished football programs from private universities, SMU-Rice is one of the better rivalries in the State of Texas. The matchup dates back to 1916 and reached its height when both schools were members of the Southwest Conference. The winner is awarded the Mayor’s Cup and Texas bragging rights. With SMU leaving to join the AAC, this rivalry has been put on hold, with fans from both sides hoping that it is brought back soon.
SMU vs. Navy
One of the budding rivalries in college football, these two traditional powers battle for the Gansz Trophy. Created in 2009, the Gansz Trophy represents the ties between the two programs and is named after Frank Gansz who played at Navy, and coached at SMU. The schools have played over 15 times dating back to 1930. With both Navy and SMU joining the AAC, this rivalry will be played annually, giving fans and players hope that the best of this rivalry is yet to come.
2015 SMU Football Preview
It would take SMU 12 weeks to get a single victory last season, with the Mustangs finishing 1-11, in one of the worst seasons in school history. The Mustangs failed to score double digit points in 7 games, and their defense allowed more than 40 points 8 times. Despite this disappointment, the Mustangs have loads of hype and potential in 2015. Offensive mastermind Chad Morris takes over as head coach of the Ponies and should help mold the young Mustangs quarterbacks. SMU was one of the youngest teams in the AAC last year, and their 2015 squad will be much more experienced than one season ago. It usually takes a few years for a program to adjust to a new head coach, but the SMU Mustangs should be vastly improved in 2015.
2014 SMU Football Preview
The Southern Methodist University Mustangs football team had an interesting year in 2013. It was the first year the Mustangs were in the American Athletic Conference (AAC) and the first year they were in one of the power conferences since the breakup of the Southwest Conference. The season was defined by near misses. SMU lost to UCF, Cincinnati, and Rutgers by 4 points or less. 2014 opens with more transition for the Ponies with the resignation of June Jones, and the introduction of Tom Mason as interim head coach. But there is much reason for optimism in Dallas as the Mustangs have some of the most dangerous offensive players in the AAC. The running back duo of Kevin Pope and Prescott Line is incredibly dynamic, and senior receiver Der’ikk Thompson should see plenty of targets. There are a number of high profile teams on SMU’s 2014 football schedule, including Texas A&M, and TCU, both of whom will make trips to Gerald J. Ford Stadium. Key games in the AAC for the Mustangs will be October 18th against Cincinnati, and November 28th against Houston.
2011 SMU Football Preview
SMU finished 7-7 last season, but they were certainly fun to watch. With a high-powered offense led by head coach June Jones' run-and-gun style, the Mustangs were able to put up and impressive 25.7 points per game. With a number of returning starters, SMU may once again compete for the Conference USA crown.
The offense will be led by junior quarterback Kyle Padron, who showed last year he is up to the task of leading the team. Luckily, Padron will have two more-than-capable receivers to throw to in Cole Beasley and Darius Johnson - both of whom had solid seasons in 2010. Zach Line will be back at running back after rushing for more than 1,400 last year as well.
The defense was solid last year, and that appears to be the case once again this season. Defensive ends Taylor Thompson and Margus Hunt will lead the way, and Richard Crawford will anchor the SMU secondary. With seven returning starters, the Mustangs certainly have experience, but they will be looking to create more take-aways than last year's squad.
2010 SMU Football Preview
After a few years spent rebuilding, the Southern Methodist University Mustangs hope that 2010 will be the season when all the right pieces come together. Last season, the team made huge strides, becoming the most improved team in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. In coach June Jones' second season, SMU finished with an overall record of 8-5. The winning record, which was good enough to lock up 2nd place in Conference USA West, came just one year after a 1-11 finish.
The season ended on a strong note when the Mustangs dismantled the University of Nevada by a score of 45-10 in the 2009 Hawaii Bowl - SMU's first bowl game in 25 years.
SMU will be led by the dazzling young quarterback Kyle Padron, who threw for 1,922 yards and 10 touchdowns in his freshman season. With a year of college football now under his belt, Padron is expected to carry the team on his back in pursuit of Conference Championship and another bowl game appearance. The Mustangs open their season on September 5 against Texas Tech, and take on the TCU Horned Frogs in the Battle for the Iron Skillet rivalry at home on September 24.
2009 SMU Football Preview
Things are looking up for the SMU Mustangs heading into the 2009 season. That is mostly because year one of June Jones tenure as Head Coach of the SMU Mustangs did not get off to the start that most people expected. SMU finished 2008 with a 1-11 record and was blown out of a few games. But the beauty of college football is that each season the slate is wiped clean, so hope springs eternal for the Ponies. If Jones can find a quarterback to lead his high powered offense and get his defense respectable, then expect to see a fun to watch, high scoring team at Ford Field.
2008 SMU Football Preview
The Southern Methodist University Mustangs football program has a rich history and boasts great success in the past. After a tough 2007 season amid rumors of a coaching change, SMU athletics has announced that Phil Bennett will remain head coach and will look to lead the team up the Conference USA ranks and compete for their first C-USA title. Gerald J. Ford Stadium will roar as Mustangs fans try to help push their team to a conference championship and a return to form.
