Hit the boulevard at SMU on game day

We know, we know. People in Texas loooove football. But you know what the students and alumni of SMU love? Boulevarding. (Don’t you dare call it tailgating.) They put on their SMU best and head out to partake in free beer, free concerts, and free people-watching. Though there are a few crazy, drunk fans, there are also family-friendly activities. And there’s a great community. It’s one of those everybody-knows-everybody environments. SMU had many, many years to perfect it, as games weren’t much to look forward to.  Photography by Guy Rogers
