The SMU Mustangs football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the SMU Mustangs football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Mustangs represent Southern Methodist University in the NCAA's American Athletic Conference.

Although SMU began competing in intercollegiate football in 1915,[1] the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1945. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since 1945, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
  • The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002.[2] The Mustangs have played in five bowl games since this decision, giving many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2017 season.
