SMU Mustangs Game Notes
Tanner Mordecai completed 19 of 27 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns and added one carry for six yards in Saturday's 41-23 win at South Florida. Mordecai did not live up to his nine touchdown performance that he put up last Saturday versus Houston, but he still ended with a solid stat line Saturday. Mordecai completed over 70 percent of his passes for the third time in four games, and threw for over 275 yards for the sixth time in the past seven games. This was also the senior's second game this season without a turnover or a sack. Mordecai faces a tough test next Thursday at Tulane, as the Green Wave only allow 180 passing yards per game.
Tulane Green Wave Game Notes
Michael Pratt completed 23 of 39 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns, losing four yards and scoring a touchdown on six carries in Saturday's 38-31 loss to UCF. Pratt was solid Saturday, accounting for his most yards and touchdowns since Oct. 15 at South Florida. Pratt has been a bit inconsistent through the air this season, but his six rushing touchdowns have given him a nice boost in production. The junior has a good matchup next Thursday versus SMU, as the Mustangs allow nearly 450 yards per game.
