2016 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.

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.
