Welcome back everyone. This is our College Football Week 10 Feature Game Analysis. This week we’ll look in depth at the game between SMU and Memphis.
Feature Game Analysis
(15)SMU at Memphis
Kickoff is scheduled for Saturday night, November 2nd at 7:30 pm. SMU is on the road, traveling to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tennessee where they’re 5.5 point underdogs. SMU, in my opinion, is the better team here so for them to be underdogs against Memphis would only be because they’re on the road. Nevertheless, that’s interesting.
SMU is very good They’re undefeated (8-0) and ranked fifteenth nationally. The Mustangs have played several close games this season including that three overtime win against Tulsa, but they won them all. That’s what they do. They’re also ranked 12th overall in total offense registering 504 yards per game.
RB Xavier Jones (884 yards/14 touchdowns) is a workhorse. He’s averaging 110 yards per game and 5.4 yards per carry. That gives the Mustang offense balance and confidence, and the result? QB Shane Buechele passed for 2,325 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Memphis is home, and obviously having home field advantage is huge for them this week. They’re (7-1) overall, with their only loss coming at the hands of Temple. I know that hurts, but all they can do is keep winning, and they’ve done just that.
Memphis can play with SMU, but they need to prove that saturday. I always end up rooting for the underdog, but I actually like SMU this season.
