Looking at the available seats, doesn't look many have been sold all week. Lil Ricky, needs to be out hawking tickets today.

I wonder if predictions of it being 102 degrees Sat has anything to do with low ticket sales? Heck they are predicting 100 degrees at kickoff.

I seem to remember it was 107 for the opening game at Ford against Kansas way back when...and the excitement over a new on campus stadium lead to a sellout that night. Sure hop we can do better than 18k for this game

SMU fans/alums will use anything they can as an excuse to not go to games.

That Kansas game was also in the middle of the day with barely a hint of shade in Ford. Tonight, by the second quarter, the majority of the seats will be in shade.

Don't underestimate the allure of a P5 opponent though!

Yeah. If we were opening a new stadium against UNT it would be standing room only.
