Player of the Game
SMU had very little success in any area of the game, but did manage to pressure Justin Holman, thanks to the efforts of John Bordano and Johnathan Yenga. The two combined for 15 tackles and two sacks.
Deion Sanders Jr started to get a lot more looks at receiver in the second half. He finished with four catches for 38 yards. He also had a 65 yard kick return to set up SMU’s only scoring drive of the game.
SMU will Host Houston in Dallas at Ford Stadium, Friday, Nov. 28 at 11 a.m..
