Memphis Vs. SMU 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

Jim Cowsert-US PRESSWIRE

The SMU Mustangs are heavy favorites in Saturday's matchup against Memphis.

The SMU Mustangs (3-4, 2-1) welcome the Memphis Tigers (1-6, 1-2) to Texas for a Conference USA matchup Saturday at Gerald Ford Stadium in Dallas.

The Mustangs have been inconsistent for most of the season under transfer quarterback Garrett Gilbert but have a ton of confidence this week after a 72-42 pounding of Houston last week. Gilbert passed for four touchdowns in the win, with the SMU defense returning three interceptions for touchdowns. The SMU defense forced six interceptions and nine turnovers in the game overall.

The Tigers, meanwhile, have just one win on the season as they have struggled with one of the more anemic offenses in the NCAA. Scoring just 18.1 points per game, Memphis has the 116th-rated passing offense in the nation, while allowing more than 32 points a game on defense.

It should be no surprise that, despite the inconsistency, the Mustangs are currently 21 1/2 point favorites over Memphis for Saturday. The over-under line is also set at 49 1/2, with most expecting a relatively high-scoring game.

Kickoff set for 2 p.m. CT.
