Though the SMU Mustangs find themselves sitting at 1-2 on the season, they're still perfectly alive within Conference USA play, as the Mustangs have yet to play an in-conference game.
Tulsa currently leads the CUSA West, with a 1-0 record, while Rice and Tulane sit at 0-1. SMU, UTEP and Houston have yet to start conference play.
