SMU has had a really decent season in 2020, with their offense still flying high, although they were held down pretty well by Tulsa in their last game, as they were only able to gain 351 yards of total offense in an eventual 28-24 loss.
The East Carolina Pirates are better than their record, as they have had some tough spots on their schedule and they have remained competitive throughout most of the season. They get yet another tough test, as the schedule has done them no favors, as they welcome in the SMU Mustangs to Dowdy-Ficklen stadium this Saturday.
SMU QB Shane Buechele has been great on the season, but he was only able to throw for 200 yards against Tulsa and he will now need to bounce-back here against ECU in order to get back into the win column.
Look out for Ulysses Bentley IV who is a running back who looks electric at times and has already gotten to 877 yards and 11 TD’s and he looks primed to add to those stats this Saturday.
East Carolina Pirates
The ECU Pirates have had a pretty brutal schedule and so it did not surprise me that this team blew out the Temple Owls last week by a score of 28-3, as that was a big class dropped compared to what they were used to playing. Holten Ahlers was not fantastic in that outing, as he was unable to throw for over 200 yards and only had a completion percentage of 50%.
He has been great at times earlier this season and therefore it would also not surprise me if he goes out and has a solid game against SMU, as they do not have the best defense and Ahlers should have more opportunity to throw in this contest.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick
Every trend towards the over in this game and that makes a ton of sense to me, as I think the ECU Pirates can put up a respectable amount of points here on SMU and I have no real doubt about the Mustang’s ability to put up points on the Pirates defense. The number is also not too excessive here sitting at 67.5 and think this one could crush that total if this game gets started with a bang.
