SMU and Campbell fought to a 1-1 draw in the 2012 season opener for both sides.  After a scoreless opening half, SMU jumped ahead just after halftime.  Campbell answered right back though in less than ten minutes earning an impressive road tie.

It was a pair of freshman that linked up for the goal as Leobardo Vazquez found Eddie Puskarich who blasted home from 25 yards out.

Campbell levelled the match minutes later though as Ricki Gaez headed home a cross.  Depsite a solid night in the nets with 8 saves, SMU keeper Jaime Ibarra was unable to keep the header out.

SMU heads to Tulsa next weekend to compete in the Hurricane Classic against a pair of talented opponents.  SMU will face #8 South Florida followed by a matchup with #6 New Mexico.  It will be a great early season test to find out really where the 16th ranked Mustangs stand.
