Ford Stadium on Saturday, September 17, at 7 p.m. (a $35.05 value). Seats are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and are located in section 123 in the sideline-east area of the stadium.

The SMU Mustangs gallop onto the field with 20 returning seniors, back-to-back bowl appearances, and 96 years of football-flavored wisdom. Groupon-getters snag seats in section 123, which showcases exciting midfield events such as the coin toss, the kickoff, and the team's customary halftime minuet. With five All-Conference USA players on the roster, the Mustangs plan to wow fans and daunt foes with helmet-rattling tackles and earth-shattering punts. Last season, junior quarterback Kyle Padron set SMU records with 3,828 passing yards, 302 completions, and 31 touchdowns. Junior linebacker Ja'Gared Davis, a member of the Lombardi Award watch list, sacked nine opponents and 8.6 tons of groceries in 2010.
Gerald J. Ford Stadium welcomes fans with 32,000 seats arranged in a horseshoe shape that facilitates optimal game gazing. Since opening its gates in 2000, the stadium has propelled five Mustangs to NFL stardom with giant slingshots made from the end zones' goalposts.
