What’s Going To Happen
The roles were supposed to be reversed. SMU was expected to be fighting for bowl eligibility, while Tulsa was supposed to be in the hunt for the West division – if everything could come together in a hurry in a slight rebuilding year.
But things haven’t worked out as planned for the Golden Hurricane, and the Mustangs have a shot at being taking the West – if they can survive.
They still need one more win to become bowl eligible, and with UCF, at Navy, and at Memphis up next, it would be nice to get it now and not worry about having to take down Tulane in the regular season finale.
Tulsa’s big issue is a run defense that can’t seem to come up with a meaningful stop. It has the second-worst overall D in the country, and it’s not making big plays when the ball is in the air, but it’s the defensive front that’s screwing everything up.
SMU’s offense owns third downs, the ground game is good enough, and the points come in bunches with an efficient attack that doesn’t give the ball away.
If SMU is for real, it takes this game down without much of a battle. It’ll show that it’s ready to take on the bigger boys after this.
