Bring Home the Victory

Chad Morris, the 2nd year coach at Southern Methodist, wants to build on last year’s 2 win season. Morris has a combination power-run / spread offense.

QB Matt Davis, a dual threat QB, leads the offense. Mustangs RB’s Xavier Jones and Braeden West each ran for at least 450 yards in 2015.

Defensively the Mustangs are very young, but at least they’re healthier this year; following an injury riddled campaign in 2015.

Can Tulane be stout against the Mustang Power?

They are, and the Green Wave comes away with a Homecoming Win.

WIN, 5-4
