Report: BYU to Play SMU in New Mexico Bowl

The New Mexico Bowl will reportedly feature a pair of 7-5 teams as BYU-SMU will play each other Saturday, December 17. Brett McMurphy was the first to report the news.

Both teams have good offenses and suspect defenses. SMU is 13th nationally averaging 38.4 ppg, but is 123rd nationally in scoring defense giving up 34.7 ppg. QB Tanner Mordecai has thrown for 3306 yards, 31 TDs, and 9 interceptions this year.

BYU ended the MWC era with a New Mexico Bowl appearance versus UTEP, and the Cougars will end the Independence era the same way.
