The SMU Mustangs and the UCF Knights will duel things out from the sunshine state on Wednesday night. This game is a makeup game due to the effects of Hurricane Ian. The Knights come into play with a record of 3-1 on the season, with their only loss being to the Louisville Cardinals in week two. UFC has turned its program into one of the more respected in college football. They have supported some great records over the years, and they feel that their team, yet again this season, will be able to compete for a big bowl game. They are led at the QB position by Ole Miss transfer John Rhys-Plumlee.

The Mustangs come into this one with a. Record of 2-2, but they feel that they are a much better team than their record indicates. The Mustangs have lost a couple of close games this season and they feel like they very well could have won those games. They will look to add a strong road win to their resume tonight. The Mustangs are led by senior Tanner Mordecai at the QB position. He will look to turn in a strong game tonight against this UFC defense. 

I am all over the Mustangs with the points here. I believe this will be a close game, but I think that this line is suggesting SMU. The Mustangs are a better team than 2-2, and some of these one-score games will start to fall in their favor. I have not been super impressed with UCF on the offensive side of things. This is not as good of an offense as we have seen in years past. SMU should be able to put up points tonight against UCF and score enough to stay within the number. Let’s stay hot on the gridiron! 


Pick: SMU +3 -115 (Bet $115 to win $100)
