The Mustangs (0-4) hadn’t won a game all season, and things only got worse after this past weekend’s 56-0 pounding at the hands of visiting Texas Christian.

SMU’s struggles to move the ball offensively, continued against the Horned Frogs, managing just 245 yards. Quarterback Garrett Krstich has a dismal outing, completing just 14-of-32 passes for only 142 yards and an interception.

But the turnovers didn’t end there, the Mustangs also lost a pair of fumbles which also helped seal their fat.

The defense meanwhile, surrendered 614 yards to TCU and were virtually . ineffective against the Horned Frogs running and passing.

East Carolina

The Pirates (3-1) got a week off after cruising to a 70-41 of instate rival North Carolina.

East Carolina proved its No. 23 ranking by storming out to a hot offensive start and never let off the acclerator, rolling up 787 yards and 39 first downs.

Quarterback Shane Carden controlled the air and connected on 30-of-48 passes for 438 yards with four touchdowns including two to Trevon Brown.

The Pirates also dominated on the ground, with Breon Allen providing the muscle with 211 yards and a pair of trips to the endzone.

Defensively, the Pirates did allowed 41 points, so enough said.

College football betting trends

  • SMU are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games.
  • ECU are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games on grass.
  • Over is 7-2 in ECU last 9 games on grass.

Week 6 NCAA Football Spread Prediction

This a huge spread, but I question whether East Carolina can repeat last week’s dominating offensive performance.

Also, with the defense giving up points at will against a middling North Carolina offense, the Mustangs may be able to keep this one closer than the current spread is indicating.

I think the Pirates win this straight up, but I am laying down my money on SMU and taking the points.

Score Prediction: 4* Play On East Carolina 47, SMU 28
