The 2016-17 SMU Mustangs and Head Coach Chad Morris have dropped their last two vs. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
Morris has ties with the Tulsa football program, spending a season as quarterbacks coach. The ponies offense lost senior signal caller and Houston native Matt Davis for the season with an ACL injury.
The coaching staff has been forced to use youth and inexperience under center. Freshman Ben Hicks tossed two touchdown passes with two interceptions in last Saturday’s loss at Temple.
Morris must watch his young quarterback go through growing pains. SMU has victories over North Texas and Liberty so far this season.
The Mustangs are playing conference opponents and the staff will see the team’s mental makeup on Friday. The SMU defense must stop the high powered Tulsa Golden Hurricane offense.
SMU did a good job containing TCU earlier this season but could not produce any offense.
