SMU has a record of 7-6 straight up and 6-6-1 with the NCAA odds as 7 of their games going under the total. The Mustangs were the champions of the Conference USA West Division and lost the title game at Central Florida 17-7. Sophomore QB Kyle Padron leads the attack with 3626 yards passing and a 29/12 TD/INT ratio.
Zach Line had 1391 yards rushing to balance out the attack while Aldrick Robinson and Cole Beasley were both over 1000 yards receiving. Defense remains suspect and ranks 61st for points allowed.
June Jones has accomplished much in just 3 years on the job as coach and has this program poised in its best position since the pre death penalty years of the mid 1980’s. The Ponies should be bowling for years to come.
Army has a record of 6-6 straight up and 5-7 with the NCAA football lines as 8 of their games went over the total. The Black Knights are limping into this one with just 1 win in their last 4 games as they are coming off a 31-17 loss to Navy.
Army has the 10th ranked rushing attack in the country led by Jared Hassin, who had 932 yards and 9 TD’s. Quarterback Trent Steelman rushed for 693 yards and passed for 965 more. Army’s defense improved to rank 23rd overall in the nation.
College football gambling excitement should be high for this one as the Mustangs continue to show improvement and should be a rising force in Conference USA while Army is also a program on the upswing and should be a post season regular for years to come.
