2.5 pt favorites at SMU
That line shocked the heck out of me. Figured Schmoo would be 2-3 pt fav. We haven't played in a month, they're 3-0 and averaging 49 a game.

They have played 3 high school teams all 3 teams scored easily on them. I think we come out nervous/flat in the first half and pull away in the 3rd quarter just like how we played ASU

Yeah, it’s 2020.
I wouldn’t take a bet on Mike Tyson vs. Mike Rowe this year.

I'm so used to Memphis being the underdog, it's STILL hard for me to take them as favs.

RE: 2.5 pt favorites at SMU
Our Tigers have beat SMU several consecutive times (somebody will tell us how many). I think that after a while, that kind of stat works on the losing team's mind. Consider our string of consecutive losses to UCF. That becomes a big hill to climb.

If we are able to field a squad vs. SMU that represents our talent level, I think we pick up the win. If our squad depth is seriously reduced by Covid-19, then we could drop this one.

We haven't lost to SMU since 2013 when they were up like 31.3 and we came back to lose by five.

Since then we've routed them every game but 2019, where we still dropped half a hundred on them.

Actually I think 2018 was close too.

2018 was that ugly sloppy game down there. We won like 23-10 or something, but it wasn't pretty. Turned it over a couple times in the red zone, I think.

I'll always remember Pax shredding them in the LB. Was it 6 TD's or 7? I remember they were all to different receivers.

I’m one of those who enjoys a good rout assuming we are on the winning side

memphis and ucf have the same conference opponents except for

memphis plays smu and navy
ucf plays ecu and tulsa

that seems fair (not)
