SMU ANNOUNCES 2001 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE

Dallas, Texas -- Home games with four 2000 bowl teams highlight Southern Methodist University's 2001 football schedule, announced today by Mustang Director of Athletics Jim Copeland.

"The schedule is an attractive one," said Copeland. "I don't think many schools around the country will play four bowl teams at home. We have a good, challenging schedule at Ford Stadium."

SMU opens its 2001 season on Sept. 1 at Louisiana Tech, who joins the Western Athletic Conference this summer. The Mustangs home opener is one week later on Sept. 8 against arch-rival TCU, which played in the Mobile Bowl last season.
Other bowl teams that come to Gerald J. Ford Stadium are North Carolina State (Micron PC) for Parents Weekend on Sept. 22, UTEP (Humanitarian) for Homecoming on Oct. 27 and Fresno State (Silicon Valley) on Nov. 10.

SMU's other non-conference game is at North Carolina on Sept. 15 and the Mustangs open home WAC play on Oct. 6 against Hawaii.

Game times and SMU's television schedule will be announced at a later date. The Mustangs will welcome back 18 starters (10 on defense, eight on offense) in the fall.

Sorry to be pessimistic, but we have phenomenal chances at being 0-7 going into the Nevada game.

You are very right. We need to beat LaTech to have any chance to do well. TCU, NCState, and UNC will all be losses. Hawaii and San Jose will be tough ones but we could win. I was too optimistic last year. I am trying to be realistic this year. I say Wins against Tulsa, Nevada, LaTech, and revenge against Rice. We might pick up a win against Fresno or Hawaii or San Jose. Realistically, I see us winning three maybe four games.

I agree. I think that's a very realistic prognosis. I hope we're wrong, but I just see another bleak campaign for the Ponies.
