SMU opens the season at former Southwest Conference rival Texas A&M on Sept. 3 before opening the home slate with a big C-USA Western Division match-up with UTEP on Sept. 10. The SMU alum Bradley Dale Peveto-coached Northwestern State Demons then come to Dallas for a meeting with SMU on Sept. 17.
The Mustangs will then enter a tough stretch with four of five games on the road, playing at Memphis (Sept. 24), at TCU (Oct. 1), at Southern Miss (Oct. 22) and at Tulsa (Oct. 29), with only an Oct. 15th home rematch of the 2010 Conference USA Championship Game against UCF breaking up the road run.
The November slate features three of four games at Gerald J. Ford Stadium, as SMU plays host to Tulane (Nov. 5), Navy (Nov. 12) and Rice (Nov. 26). SMU's final road contest comes on Nov. 19 when the Mustangs play at Houston, with the two squads having shared the C-USA Western Division Championship in back-to-back seasons.
The C-USA Championship game will then be played on Dec. 3.

Kickoff times will be set at a later date and game dates are subject to change for television.
