The SMU Mustangs men's soccer team represents Southern Methodist University in men's college soccer. The team used to be coached by former FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman. Since the latter part of the 2000s (decade), the Mustangs have become one of the top men's collegiate sides in the NCAA, finishing in the top five during the regular season on numerous polls.
During the 2006 season, the SMU men's soccer program was ranked No. 1 in the nation for four consecutive weeks. The team sat atop the four national polls with a record of 13-0-2 in the Adidas/NSCA poll, SoccerTimes.com poll, Soccer America Magazine poll, and the CollegeSoccerNews.com poll. Concurrently, the SMU women's soccer program cracked the top 25, at No. 22 in the Adidas/NSCA poll and No. 19 in the SoccerTimes.com poll.
On November 6, 2006, the SMU men's soccer team finished the regular season ranked No. 2 in the nation. Additionally, SMU won the C-USA title game, beating Kentucky 2-0 in Tulsa. This C-USA championship win is the sixth conference title for SMU since 1997.
The SMU men's soccer team finished the 2010 season with an overall record of 16-2-2. The Mustangs finished the season strong with a trip to the Elite Eight where they lost to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in a penalty kick shootout.
While SMU is traditionally rivals with Texas A&M, Rice and UTEP, these fellow schools do not fund varsity soccer programs hindering the rivalry on the soccer field for the Mustangs. Their main rivals in soccer due to geographic proximity is the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
