Taking advantage of Labor Day on Monday we are playing our first Sunday regular season game that has been played since I started school. The thought is that from a TV standpoint we'll have much fewer games to compete against for viewership.....it has been picked up nationally by FSN.
We're ranked in the preseason Top 10 for the first time since the late-90s. Kind of strange, huh?
Here are the breakdowns based on last season's stats:
SMU Offense v. aTm Defense
139 (81) Rush 130 (30)
276 (21) Pass 234 (89)
415 (33) Tot 364 (55)
25.7 (74) Scor 21.9 (34)
aTm Offense v. SMU Defense
165 (46) Rush 145 (53)
277 (20) Pass 208 (43)
442 (23) Tot 353 (40)
The Ponies finished 7-7 (6-3) on the season and finished second in C-USA losing to UCF in the title game.
SMU is definitely a team that we shouldn't expect to blowout. If we play badly they can beat us.
That said....enjoy some '10 Nebraska Kyle Field awesomeness:
Now go run through a brick wall.....and enjoy the start to a beautiful college football season
