SMU football faced Texas Tech today finishing with a disappointing loss. The Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Mustangs played an unusual Sunday football game. ESPN covered the game and many SMU students were anxious to see if the ‘stangs would live up to the hype.

SMU’s Kyle Padron could not match up against Texas Tech’s Taylor Potts, who threw for 359 yards and had four touchdowns. The final score, 35-27, marks Tommy Tuberville’s first victory as head coach of Texas Tech.

Padron and the Mustangs still hold potential for a successful season and a possible run at another bowl game. The ‘Stangs held their own against the Big 12 Raiders and kept the game tight in the second half. Although the first loss was an upset for many Pony fans, Sunday’s close match-up showed a strong Mustang Football team heading into the 2010 season.
