Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

SMU and Fresno State head out to the Islands of Hawaii to play in the 2012 Hawaii Bowl.

The SMU Mustangs needed to get past Tulsa in the season finale to just to become bowl eligible. That was no small feat since Tulsa was undefeated in league play at the time, and ultimately became the Conference USA champions.

Prior to that game, SMU has struggled all year with their offense being very inconsistent. Garrett Gilbert, a transfer from Texas, did not perform as thought. He was inconsistent and had just 14 touchdowns to 13 interceptions, however, he has thrown zero interceptions in his last five games.
