Southern Methodist Mustangs at Central Florida Knights

Saturday December 4, 2010 12:00 PM EST

Line: Central Florida -9

Southern Methodist has won their last 2 looking for their first 3 game winning streak of the season, to end the season. They beat East Carolina on the road last weekend 45-38 in OT. Central Florida also has a 2 game winning steak, both games being on the road. This C-USA championship game looks to be a good one.

Stats to consider:

Southern Methodist Mustangs:

  • The Mustangs are 7-5 with a 6-2 C-USA record.
  • Points against per game: 27.2 (64th)
  • Points for per game: 28.3 (55th)
  • Passing yards a game: 278.3 (20th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 144.6 (74th)

Central Florida Knights:

  • The Knights are 9-3 with a 7-1 C-USA record.
  • Points against per game: 18.9 (18th)
  • Points for per game: 35.2 (19th)
  • Passing yards a game: 193.8 (80th)
  • Rushing yards a game:

What to watch for:

  • Mustangs Sophomore QB Kyle Padron has thrown for 3,306 yards 28 TDs and 10 Ints and is expected to play even though he has a bum ankle. His main target has been Senior WR Aldrick Robinson who has 1,182 yards and 12 TDs. Junior WR Cole Beasley leads the team with 79 receptions and has 976 yards and 6 TDs.
  • Mustangs Sophomore RB Zach Line has rushed for 1,297 yards and 10 TDs. The las two weeks combined Line has rushed for 325 yards and 3 TDs.
  • Knights RB Ronnie Weaver has rushed for 855 yards and 11 TDs. He has played poorly the last 2 weeks and his carries have fallen in each of the last 4 weeks nad only got 6 last week.
  • Knights Freshman QB Jeffrey Godfrey has thrown for 1,875 yards 12 TDs and 6 Ints. He has also rushed for 529 yards and 9 TDs.

Championship games always make for tough football picks. The Mustangs have a very good offense, while their defense has struggled a bit. The Knights have been able to put points up and hold opponents to little points. If this game turns into a shootout, I’ll take the Mustangs. They have been able to throw the ball all over the place this year and will end the season with 2 receivers over 1,000 yards. I think this one will stay close throughout and the Mustangs will stay within a TD.
