DALLAS (SMU) - SMU today announced its highly-anticipated 2015 football schedule, the first season under new Head Coach Chad Morris. The slate is highlighted by seven games on the SMU campus, including Ford Stadium match-ups with in-state rivals Baylor and UNT. Other 2015 visitors to Ford Stadium will include American Athletic Conference foes East Carolina, Tulsa, Temple and Tulane.
SMU opens the season on Friday, Sept. 4, when the Mustangs host Baylor in an ESPN- or ESPNU-televised game. The following Saturday, SMU hosts UNT on Sept. 12 before a Sept. 19 game at TCU in the annual Battle for the Iron Skillet.
SMU will host its Centennial Celebration and Homecoming on Sept. 26 against an opponent to be determined and will be home again on Oct. 3 to host East Carolina.
SMU will then travel to Houston for its second weeknight game of the season, a Thursday-night, ESPN2-televised game against the Cougars on Oct. 8. After an open date, SMU hits the road again, this time traveling to Tampa to take on the USF Bulls on Oct. 24.
The “Boo-levard” returns in 2015, as SMU will host a home game on Halloween, Oct. 31, when Tulsa comes to Dallas. The match-up with the Golden Hurricane will also serve as Family Weekend.
