What’s Going To Happen
Just how good is SMU?
Losing to TCU on the road in a 56-36 firefight isn’t bad, especially after coming off scoring 58 in the opener against Stephen F. Austin and 54 against North Texas. And now the offense has to keep up the pressure against a good-looking Arkansas State team.
The Red Wolves pushed Nebraska in the opener – which doesn’t look so crazy now – and rolled past Arkansas-Pine Bluff, showing off the offense in both games to prove it can keep up in a game like this.
One of the biggest SMU positives so far has been the turnover margin – cranking up eight takeaways in the first three games. The defense hasn’t been anything great, but the Mustangs don’t make mistakes.
But the Red Wolves have been tight with the ball, too.
The ASU offense has been terrific, mostly because the line has been a big plus early on. Throw in the good play from the return games, and the formula is there to pull off the upset.
SMU will win, but it’ll be a back-and-forth battle that will come down to big plays in the red zone.
The Mustangs will get the key field goals the Red Wolves won’t.
