- Temperatures are predicted to be in the 80s, but SMU is hoping for blizzard-like conditions on Saturday, as it has announced a "WHITE OUT" for the Sept. 8th home opener. Fans attending the game are asked to wear white to show support for the Mustangs as they host the 21st-ranked (FCS) Stephen F. Austin Jacks at 7 p.m. at Ford Stadium.
The Mustang offense rolled up over 500 yards of offense in week one, led by Zach Line, whose 135 rushing yards gave him the 16th 100-yard games of his career, and Garrett Gilbert, who threw for 286 and two TDs.
The Jacks enter the game winners of six straight, 1-0 in 2012 and ranked No. 21 in the latest FCS poll. They are 26-11 over the course of the past three-plus seasons. SFA returns five starters on defense and 10 on offense, including preseason All-Americans Cordell Roberson and Gralyn Crawford, and trounced Southwestern Oklahoma, 49-14, in its season opener last Friday.
