DALLAS - SMU and Baylor will not play their previously scheduled 2013 football game, it was announced today.
"While this is a rivalry that both schools value, we decided it would be best if we did not play this season," said SMU A.D. Rick Hart. "This was not an easy decision and was made only after careful deliberation. With three Big 12 games and one SEC matchup on our nonconference schedule and an upgraded conference schedule as we join the BIG EAST, we felt we needed to bring some balance to our 2013 schedule. This decision does not, however, impact our long-term agreement. We will play at Baylor in 2014 when they open their new stadium and have them scheduled for annual games for numerous years."
With the game no longer on the schedule, SMU will now host Montana State on Sept. 7.
