Enjoy live music from local and regional bands and participate in games for children and adults. You can even rent a tent, invite some guests, and stir up your own fun. Although tailgating is allowed on all SMU surface parking lots, all the gameday action is on The Boulevard.

O, We see the Varsity, Varsity, Varsity;
As she towers o'er the hill over there,
And our hearts are filled with joy,
