Season 2 Week 8 Summaries SMU had extra motivation against the Tulsa Hurricanes in Dallas. For the first time since being hit with the death penalty, the Mustangs entered a game with some numbers beside their name. The fans were understandably perplexed but then worked in to a frenzy when they were informed that the numbers were in, in fact, a top 25 ranking. Additionally, a few highly touted H.S. seniors were on hand to take in the experience...they were not disappointed. SMU used a suffocatind D to put away the underachieving yet dangerous Hurricanes 31-3. SMU lacked big play ability without starting RB McNeal yet were able to keep drives alive and wear down Tulsa's D. The Mustangs held a 21-9 advantage in ball control. SMU moves to 8-0 on the season with a off date next week before taking on the Rice Owls in week 10.
