SMU HC Tom Mason Press Conference

SMU WR Stephen Nelson Q&A

Spotlight: Quarterback

With Matt Davis not practicing today, Garrett Krstich and Kolney Cassel were rotating in today and saw a significant amount of snaps. Davis isn't seriously hurt as Mason expects him back tomorrow, but it gave Cassel and Krstich more time. Today was a tough day to throw the ball and it showed. A lot of passes especially from Krstich and Cassel had trouble cutting through the wind. As a result they were either short or sailing over.
