One Reason Why Stephen F. Austin Will Win

The offense won’t be a problem – again.

The defense? That’s another issue, and the quarterback situation is different now after another good season, but the receiving corps is in place  and the running backs are in a strong rotation.

Overall, seven starters are back from an O that averaged over 30 points per game, and now the SMU D will be tested.

The Mustangs have experience, but the linebacking corps has to be a whole lot better and the secondary should be okay, but isn’t going to be a rock.

SMU has to get ready for a shootout, which is fine because …

One Reason Why SMU Will Win

SFA still doesn’t have any semblance of a defense.

Sure, plenty of starters are back, but the D got ripped to shreds through the air and wasn’t all that great against the better ground games. New year, new team, but it’s asking for the world to be night-and-day better after allowing over eight yards per throw and 34 touchdowns.

Get ready for a 300-yard passing day from the Mustangs without a problem.

What’s Going To Happen

Obviously, there’s a whole lot going on with both schools and the entire region than just a football game. And, of course, the focus will be on the disaster and families and friends of the players in the area. On the field, these two should put on a wild show.

The offenses are going to have a blast going up and down the field, and while SFA will have its moments and keep it close for a while, SMU will be unstoppable through the air.
