We have reached week nine of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s an AAC showdown when the Cincinnati Bearcats make the trip the trip to Gerald J. Ford Stadium to take on the SMU Mustangs.
The Bearcats have won two of the last three games played between the two teams.
The Cincinnati Bearcats have had quite the season but they do come into this game off a loss and they really should have won the game.
They took on the Temple Owls in their last game and the defense forgot how to play in the 4th quarter and that led to a loss.
The Bearcats strength is on the defensive side of the ball giving up only 15.1 points per game. In this game that is going to need to be the case again.
The Bearcats are led at quarterback by Desmond Ridder who has thrown for 1173 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions.
If he can just have a solid game and the defense is good they should have no issue in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the SMU Mustangs who got off to a slow start but they come into this game having won three of the last four games.
In their last game they took on the Tulane Green Wave and were seven point underdogs. When the game was finished they had won 27-23.
The Mustangs offense seems to be clicking and that has led to the success that they have enjoyed. In this game the Mustangs need the offense to find a way to create some success and not turn the ball over.
The Bearcats defense is lights out and if the Mustangs make any mistakes there is no doubt that the Bearcats will take advantage of it.
If they start to turn the ball over it will be a death wish for their chances to pull the upset.
