In NCAA Football Boca Raton Bowl, we will see SMU at Florida Atlantic.
The SMU Mustangs are 10-2 with losses only against Navy and Memphis. They managed to beat TCU early in the season in a narrow shootout- 41-38. The team is scoring 43.2 points per game while allowing 31.8. QB Shane Buechele is completing 63% of his throws for 3626 yards, 33 touchdowns, and just 9 interceptions. RB Xavier Jones is helping him with 1249 rushing yards, 5.4 yards per carry and 21 touchdowns.
Florida Atlantic is 10-3 but the team had a relatively easier schedule than their opponents. They started the season expectedly with two losses against Ohio State and UCF and then went on to 2 big winning streaks and they are still on the second- 6 wins in a row. The team is averaging 35 points per game and allowing just 22 while QB Chris Robison is completing 60% of his throws for 3396 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions.
FAU’s head coach Lane Kiffin is gone and the team will be led by interim coach Glenn Spencer. The Mustangs, on the other side, have just two losses, both coming from ranked teams and both by single digits. Take the better team with the better head coach at the moment.
