On Saturday November 26th, MCA Broadcast students, seniors Matthew McDowell and Lily Jornod and junior Wyatt Tessier got the opportunity to cover the SMU football game against Memphis at Gerald J Ford Stadium in Dallas. The students were fully accredited members of the media that day and had an All Access Pass to the press box, field, locker rooms and press conference areas, along with access to SMU indoor practice facilities. They conducted live updates after each quarter from the field and completed their final game wrap-up at midfield after the final gun. McDowell says “You don’t realize how much there is behind the scenes, when you go back into the tunnel there is lights and speakers it’s quite impressive. When you go back into the media room I don’t realize how close I am to the coaches and it really makes it a personal experience.” At the end of the game the students got to give high fives to players including SMU star wide receiver Rashee Rice, who is expected to be a NFL 1st round choice in the spring of 2023. Tessier asked Head Coach Rhett Lashlee questions in the post game press conference along with many media coverage analysts. Overall the students got the full experience of what a day in the life of a sports analyst and reporter for SMU Football truly is like.
