The Mustangs travel to Austin, Texas, for their second race of the fall season. SMU will compete at the Head of the Colorado on Saturday. The final race of the fall is set for Nov. 2 when the Mustangs compete at the Head of the Hooch in Chattanooga, Tenn.
A pair of home events highlight the spring schedule, with regattas at White Rock Lake against Creighton (March 15) and Central Oklahoma (April 26). Four regattas are slated between the home appearances, including trips to Austin, Tuscaloosa, Ala., Cherry Hill, N.J., and Tulsa, Okla. The season closes out on May 18 at the inaugural American Athletic Conference Championships in Princeton, N.J.
SMU will compete in six races with 10 different crews at the Pumpkin Head of the Colorado on Saturday. The Mustangs will be represented by a pair of entries in the 1x and 2x events, four 4+ groups (one varsity and three novice) and a freshman 8+ group that looks for its second victory of the young season. The final crew will compete in the second-novice 8+ event.

What's Your Style...
The Mustangs are in the midst of their fall season. During this portion, they compete in regattas that feature head style racing. Head racing is based on times after staggered starts. There are twists and turns in the race and is usually three miles long. The spring schedule features sprint racing and features head-to-head match ups. Crews will start together and race side-by-side.
