The Southern Methodist Mustangs look for a road victory versus the Tulsa Golden Hurricane Saturday.
The Southern Methodist Mustangs go in search of win number one with a trip to Tulsa in week eleven. The Mustangs stayed winless with a 48-10 defeat at the hands of Memphis where they trailed by 24 heading in to the locker room and were never able to get back in to it. The Tigers simply had too much firepower with 582 yards with the ability to both run and throw. On the flip side SMU fell behind and abandoned an okay rushing attack for ab air game that struggled. Garrett Krstich hit on 10-22 for 59 yards and a pair of interceptions while Matt Davis paced the run with 46 yards on seven touches with Prescott Line totaling 38 yards on 12 carries with a one yard touchdown. The game in a nutshell was Southern Methodist continued to have issues on both sides of the ball.

The Golden Hurricane are looking to end a seven game slide following Friday's 40-20 defeat at Memphis.
