SMU Mustangs | AAC (West)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+1000), Win Conference (+5000)
SSA Model Pick: None
Chad Morris took this team to a bowl game last year and then took the Arkansas job. Sonny Dykes is the new HC and his style of offense should put up some big numbers. But new schemes take time to implement and this will be a transition year for the Mustangs.

Win Total Analysis
5.5 wins (-120/+100)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Medium Confidence)
While the Mustangs enjoyed some success last season, they weren’t as strong as their record looked. Combine that with a new coaching staff this season and we should see some regression from the Mustangs. 5-7 is most likely and that will put the Mustangs under the number.
