Arkansas State gave Texas everything they could handle in Austin two weeks back, and the Indians should roll to a win and a cover this week at home against the SMU Mustangs.
Arkansas State prepares to reap revenge for a last year's humiliating 55-6 road beat-down to this same visiting SMU Mustangs team.
[articleBanner]who2beton[/articleBanner]The Indians looked good in their opening game this season as visitors against Big 12 powerhouse Texas, losing a hard-fought 21-13 decision and covering as 39½-point dogs. With campus confidence in the football program at an all time high, I expect a large turnout for this game. Look for the Indians to respond with a top notch effort against a Mustangs team that has lost 26 of their last 30 road games straight up.
Final Notes & Trends: SMU's secondary is ranked last in the nation at the moment after allowing 473 yards and four touchdowns to Texas Tech, and then 601 yards and three touchdowns to North Texas. Sweet revenge is on the agenda as Arkansas State brings home the cash.
