Back to the Boulevard

It’s that time of year again! Football season is back in full swing, and we all know what that means. The Boulevard is back. We’re only two weeks into the year, and we’ve already knocked out two Boulevards in true SMU style. Despite the hot summer heat, we’ve been out in droves the past two weekends sporting our SMU spirit hours before kickoff.

This past weekend’s game was anything but boring. After trailing much of the game, the Mustang’s capitalized on a late 4th quarter drive to take a one point lead over Montana St. with a whopping 12 seconds left. A game of small disappointments quickly evolved into a joyous celebration as the Mustangs start the season with a 1-1 record after losing a hard fought season opener to Texas Tech. Sitting in the front row as the final seconds ticked down reminded me of the TCU game my freshman year when we upset the Horned Frogs of Fort Worth in overtime for SMU’s first Iron Skillet win in years.

The season looks promising for this young, but talented group of mustangs! Pony Up!
