The SMU Mustangs have covered four of their last five games as a road underdog. The Memphis Tigers have covered 11 of their last 14 games as a home favorite. SMU has had a handful of close games this season, but the offense has been highly productive and the defense seems to come away with big play when needed most. The Memphis Tigers have scored 42 or more points in five of their last seven games and are getting the ground game going more and more each week. Memphis has won each of the last five meetings against SMU, including a 10-point win on the road last year. At home and under the lights, I have to lean toward Memphis. Home field is likely the difference in this game.
