Venue: Yulman Stadium, New Orleans, LA
Check out SMU stepping up and becoming a factor.
The Mustangs have been decent at times, losing to Tulsa in overtime and doing a nice job early in blowout losses to Baylor and TCU, but now they have their win. They didn’t just beat Houston; they rocked them out of the American Athletic Conference title hunt – for the most part – in a 38-16 win.
Meanwhile, Tulane has lost two straight after getting off to a relatively hot start with three wins in four games after opening with a loss to Wake Forest. The running game under head coach Willie Fritz is working just fine, but there’s no downfield passing game and the defense is struggling a bit too much in key moments, especially when its back is against the wall.
So how did SMU beat Houston? The run defense was fantastic, allowing just 62 yards just a week after getting ripped to shreds by Tulsa – giving up 315 yards and four scores. Last week, the defense came up with seven sacks and ten tackles for loss, and this week it’ll have to do the same to get behind the Tulane line.
The Mustang offense might not be all that fantastic, but it’ll do just enough to overcome a 250-yard running day from the Green Wave offense to get the team deep into the hunt for a bowl game.
