SMU football kept its undefeated record during the first home game against Lamar University. It was also the first Boulevard of the year, so we kicked it off with the classic white-out theme. I followed Taylor Mallalieu, a junior from Seattle, throughout the game day to see what she does for a day on the Boulevard.
10 a.m.: Mallalieu wakes up early for the evening game. She spends her morning making breakfast and doing everything to prepare for brunch with some friends. She wore a white For Love and Lemons dress with a pair of white mini cowboy boots from Urban Outfitters. She also added a white Coach bag to her outfit!
1:30 p.m.: Mallalieu joined seven of her friends for brunch at True Foods in Preston Center. Brunch is essential to boulevarding at SMU, and students start their game day off all over Dallas at different hot spots. Mallalieu enjoyed True Foods classics with hummus, tuna tostada, and a turkey burger, sharing with her friends.
4:30 p.m.: Mallalieu got to the boulevard an hour and a half before kickoff. She joined up with friends at the different tents all along Bishop Ave. Along the way, Mallalieu pet lots of dogs and took many pictures with her friends.
6:00 p.m.: Mallalieu got to Ford Stadium right after kickoff. She watched the mustangs win while sitting on the grass hill along with the rest of the SMU student body. Mallalieu also enjoyed the different food trucks in the stadium.
Taylor Mallalieu ended her night early after a long day in the Texas heat. Boulevards are a staple of SMU game days, and I look forward to the rest of the football season!
