Southern Methodist University (SMU) Mustangs–Gerald J. Ford Stadium

Posted by Strickland on February 14, 2007

SMU entrance As you know, after looking at other posts, I didn’t get to watch a game at SMU, but I did get to walk around the campus and look at their facilities [if you want to know more, look at the posts under TCU and SMU].

While I was walking around the stadium and taking pictures at SMU, I was welcomed by some charter buses.  There was a team unloading and I believe the team was Praire View A & M.  They were going to practice and get ready for their game at the Cotton Bowl against Grambling.  But, I can’t 100% remember what team it was because I’m writing this several months from the event.  So, while the team was unloading their buses, the gates were open.  So, I went into the stadium and I began taking pictures.  I didn’t know really anything about SMU, but when I was walking around the stadium from the outside, the stadium used to be named Ownby Stadium until it’s new name of Gerald J. Ford Stadium.
