Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the SMU Mustangs and the victory they were favored to collect going into this night. It's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Abilene Christian Wildcats as SMU lead 49-9.

QB Tanner Mordecai has led the way so far for the Mustangs, as he has passed for seven TDs and 317 yards on 31 attempts. Abilene Christian has been riding high on the performance of WR Kobe Clark, who has caught five passes for one TD and 52 yards.
