The SMU Mustang football team, along with head coach Sonny Dykes, will demonstrate a tougher, more physical defensive game during the 2018 Spring Game on Saturday, April 14. The scrimmage begins at 11 a.m. in Ford Stadium.
Gates will open at 10 a.m. and, along with on-field action, fans will be part of a halftime celebration to mark the start of construction of SMU’s Indoor Performance Center. The Mustang Kids’ Zone will be set up in the south end zone, and fans can pick up 2018 schedule magnets and meet the coaches and players after the game.
Concessions will be available, and Mi Cocina, Bahama Buck’s and Ruthies Rolling Cafe will be on-site. Admission is free, and so is parking in the Moody and Binkley Parking Centers.
The Mustangs open the 2018 season on Sept. 1 at North Texas, before returning to the Hilltop for a Friday night match-up with Metroplex rival TCU on Sept. 7. The Battle for the Iron Skillet will also be SMU’s annual Whiteout Game.
The team will play Michigan in Ann Arbor on Sept. 15 and hosts Houston Baptist on Sept. 29 (Family Weekend) for its final non-conference game.
