SMU's struggles continued on the season. After a close first quarter, Memphis scored 24 in the second quarter to build a 31-7 halftime lead.

Paxton Lynch picked apart SMU's defense, throwing for 307 yards and a touchdown, moving Memphis up and down the field. The Tigers totaled 584 yards on the day versus SMU's 251.

SMU has yet to find a quarterback that can do much of anything on offense. The Mustangs started Garrett Krstich and Matt Davis replaced him in the third quarter after back-to-back interceptions.

Krstich finished with just 59 yards passing completing 10-of-22 throws and added two interceptions. Davis didn't set the world on fire, but his ability to create on the ground allowed him to rush for 46 yards on seven carries.

SMU has officially been eliminated from bowl contention now. SMU's inept on offense. It's not changing anytime soon no matter who starts.

Luke Seeker and Prescott Line combined for 72 yards on 14 carries, while Memphis had 10 different rushers with Brandon Hayes leading the way. Hayes rushed for 101 yards and a score and Jarvis Cooper added 93 yards and two touchdowns.

SMU has had 18 scoreless quarters on the year. SMU's opponents on the other hand, have scored in every quarter on the season.

SMU has a bye next week before facing Tulsa on the road on November 8 with another chance at their first win against the struggling Golden Hurricane.
