What’s Going To Happen
SMU is going bowling, Tulane needs this to go bowling, and it should lead to a great fight consider the Mustangs want to stay hot.
Tulane rallied back in a big way following a four-game losing streak, beating East Carolina and shocking Houston to stay live. Now they have to get the job done on the road, but it’s had a hard time away from New Orleans with just that ECU win.
But SMU will take this seriously.
The Mustangs have lost three straight after rolling past Tulsa and Cincinnati. Put in their place by the American Athletic elite, the defense has to be better, the O needs to come up with bigger plays at the right time, and they need to win again just to prove that they can.
But they’ll have to bomb away to do it.
The passing game has been among the best in the conference averaging over 300 yards per game, but the run defense has been miserable.
Tulane’s option attack has been dangerous, and the secondary has been strong. It just might be the formula to pull this off.
The Green Wave will be frustrating. They’ll control the clock with the ground game, they’ll keep the SMU offense off the field, and they’ll go on enough long marches to pull off the upset to get that sixth win.
