SMU (4-5) vs. UConn (1-8) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
All of a sudden, SMU is in the mix for a bowl game after shocking Houston 45-31 to shake up the Conference USA race. Now, SMU is a player – both of its conference losses are to the East.
Win out – it has Memphis and Tulsa after this – and get another Houston loss, and the Mustangs are playing for the Conference USA title.
Or, lose two of the last three and they don’t even go bowling.
And then there’s UConn, which is searching for any sign of life in a dreadful season.
The defense has improved a wee bit over the last few weeks, but it hasn’t mattered. It’s still the worst D in college football, and that’s just what the inconsistent SMU offense needs.
This is hardly a championship-worthy Mustang team, but it’s resilient. This week, the offense will do just enough to get by on the road, even though it won’t be as easy as it might like. It won’t be too cold, but it’ll still be in the 30s.
The Huskies need every advantage they can get.
