The SMU Mustangs Football team has one of the most storied histories in the country. The Mustangs play in the AAC against many of the top programs in college football. SMU first fielded a football team in 1915 and has won over 500 games. In addition to the conference championships, SMU has played in a dozen plus bowl games and won multiple national championships. Some of the all time great college football players have played for the Mustangs including, “Dandy” Don Meredith, Eric Dickerson, Raymond Berry, and Heisman Trophy winner Doak Walker. Recent success has brought pride back into the program and created many great new traditions including, “Boulevarding,” which is easily one of the largest and most exhilarating tailgating experiences in the country. When attending games at Gerald J. Ford Stadium fans should remember to wear red and be prepared to sing the “Pony Battle Cry” early and often.
SMU vs TCU Tickets
The biggest college football rivalry in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex pits these two athletic powerhouses against each other. TCU and SMU first met in 1915 and have played in all but a handful of 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 Texas football pride.
SMU vs Rice Games
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.
