The Mustangs started the 2018 season going 0 – 3, but have rebounded to take two straight wins coming into this weekend.
Last weekend SMU got past Houston Baptist 63 – 27, which essentially is a mid-season scrimmage. SMU totaled 653 yards of offense, and 11 different receivers caught passes in the win.
McKenzie Milton continues to tear apart Division 1 foes, as the Mustangs ride a 16-game winning streak into week 6 of the NCAA football season.
The Kapolei Hawaii product is hoping to join Marcus Mariota as the only two Hawaiian players to take home the Heisman Trophy.
SMU had three different players throw for TDs in the win, and even the punter got involved with the offense. A fake punt led to a passing TD for Jamie Sackville, as he and regular QBs William Brown and Ben Hicks added three more passes for scores.
SMU brought in defensive coordinator Kevin Kane this year, in hopes of fixing a defense that ranked 117th or worse in 6 defensive categories a season ago.
Unfortunately, he has done nothing of the sort, and SMU still ranks 115th in the nation in points allowed through only 5 games. Let’s just say that nothing has been repaired, and that this could be a long day for the SMU defense against UCF.
UCF QB McKenzie Milton is ridiculous, and I mean that in the best way possible. Dude can do everything and anything when it comes to getting the ball in the end zone.
Last weekend against Pittsburgh, Milton accounted for all 6 touchdowns that were scored in the 45 – 14 win over the Panthers. Milton threw for four and ran for two more, which is something we accustom to seeing on a weekly basis.
As most people know who follow NCAA football, UCF went undefeated a year ago, and self-proclaimed themselves National Champions. We know this because of the huge banner that the team has spread out in the stands.
Milton put up over 4,000 passing yards a season ago, and already has accumulated 1223 yards through the air in 2018. He scored 8 TDs on the ground a season ago, and already has 5 scores with his feet through only 4 games this year.
Central Florida has taken the last 4 meetings between the teams, and are 5 – 1 overall since 2010 in the series.
Last year, SMU gave Central Florida quite a fight at home, although the Knights came away with the 31 – 24 win.

Free Week 6 NCAA Football Pick
The play to make here is on the total, as 75+ points is simply not enough to contain UCF and that offense.
SMU can also add to that on both sides of the ball, because their offense is decent, but their defense is atrocious. UCF and McKenzie Milton should have no problem adding stock to his Heisman hopeful campaign, when he adds at least five more scores to his resume.
