Why SFA Will Win
The offense didn’t roll through the first two games, but it didn’t let games get out of hand.
The Lumberjacks were in both games against UTEP and UTSA, but they couldn’t get the big late scoring drive to get over the hump. The pass defense didn’t get destroyed in the two games, but it had issues – it has to be able to overcome the yards SMU will generate through the air.
This is hate game for SFA to get its own passing game going against a suspect Mustang secondary that struggled late in the 65-35 win over North Texas, but …
Why SMU Will Win
The SMU offense heated up.
It got past the tune-up opener against Texas State – a struggle of a game, even though the passing game clicked – to rip up North Texas for 710 yards of total offense.
