The SMU Mustangs (0-7) will have their best chance of the season to pick up their first win when they go up against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane (1-7) on Saturday afternoon. Both teams are currently near the bottom of the American standings.
SMU gave up 31 first-half points to Memphis two weeks ago and were blown out 48-10 on their home field. Their defense did very little to stop Memphis' offense in that game, giving up 582 total yards in the loss.
The Mustangs are clearly the worst team in the country right now after scoring just seven points per game through their first seven games. Quarterback Garrett Krstich has completed just 55.2 percent of his passes for 849 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions. Wide receiver Darius Joseph has caught 27 passes for 191 yards and a team-leading two touchdowns.
Tulsa has now lost seven games in a row after losing 40-20 to Memphis on the road last Friday. They didn't turn the ball over in that game, but they were only able to rush for 62 yards.
Tulsa has thrown for 295.1 yards per game this season, but they are only scoring 23.9 points per game. Quarterback Dane Evans has thrown for 2,290 yards this season with 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Keevan Lucas has been one of the better wide receivers in the country by catching 75 passes for 929 yards and eight touchdowns.
