SMU returned to the Cotton Bowl on a permanent basis for the first time since 1978. The Cotton Bowl was SMU's home stadium from 1932 through 1978, during which SMU rose to national prominence. SMU opened the season with an upset over eventual SEC West champion Arkansas 17-14. This was SMU's final season in the Southwest Conference, their home since 1918. SMU, along with TCU and Rice, would join the Western Athletic Conference for the 1996 Season.
