Bowl Week 1 Summaries SMU Claims Hawaii Bowl SMU dominated Utah State from the outset and cruised to a 38-7 victory. Not much to report in this one as SMU forced 5 TO's returning 2 for TD's and used a ball control offense to get the victory. Coach onaradio34 could have called off the dogs but allowed his seniors to play and enjoy their last game as Mustangs. "Nobody thought these kids could accomplish what they have and for that, the will always be SMU legends. Most came as castoffs and unwanted kids and look at what they have accomplished, a top 10 final ranking and were one play away from the National Championship Game!" SMU finishes 12-1 with a possible top 5 finish. This being the exact record that Onaradio34 had in his 2nd season with Tulane before coming to SMU. The future looks bright for the Mustangs.
