LINE: Arkansas State -2.5, o/u: 56
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
When did these two supposedly stop playing offense?
SMU upgraded its quarterback situation with Shane Buechele coming in from Texas, and he has a loaded receiving corps to work with.
Arkansas State might have lost QB Justice Hansen, but it has more than enough talent and experience to keep its own high-powered attack going.
The Red Wolves might have been inconsistent last season, but the line dipping down to 56 after starting out at 58.5, all you’re looking for is close to 30 points out of a team that scored 31 or more in each of the last six regular season games. SMU’s offense only scored 30 or more four times last season, but that’s about to change.
Expect the two offenses to be a whole lot of fun, and expect a charged up atmosphere in a back-and-forth shootout.
