What’s Going To Happen
If all the parts were in place and this wasn’t a program in transition, this would all point to a big win for Florida Atlantic. But SMU is too good, too explosive, and too motivated to blow this.
Glenn Spencer will be fine as the interim FAU head coach, but SMU’s offense will be balanced right away, and the killer pass rush will play a role as the game goes on.
This is a massive moment for the American Athletic Conference. SMU was in the mix for the Cotton Bowl late in the year, and it was one of the league’s signature programs. If would be embarrassing to lose to a team from a league that’s a step down – even if it’s a champion – that’s changing things up so much.
