Coach Chad Morris continues to work his magic on the Hilltop. The SMU Mustangs finished the regular season with a 7-5 record, that's a two game improvement from last year and a five game improvement from 2015.
Seven wins is the most for SMU since 2012. The Mustangs ended the season with a 41-38 win over Tulane Saturday at Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas to give them six home wins on the season, that's the most since 1981.
"It's amazing to see these kids where we started and where we are now," Morris said. "I'm so proud of this team and where this program was just three years ago to be 7-5 and guaranteed a winning season. It's really special to be in that locker room now and watch these seniors, especially in the fashion of the win and the way it happened."
SMU's 41 points against Tulane extended the season record 482 points and also extended the season record to 63 touchdowns.
SMU will now get to work and prepare for their first bowl game since 2012. Coaches and players won't know which bowl game they will play in until Sunday, Dec. 3 when bowl selections are made.
