SMU Leads Series Record 10-8, but UTEP has won 6 of the last 8 Meetings

TV:  Fox Sports Southwest

Here are some quick gameday links I wanted to pass on.

The Preview:  USA Today has a comprehensive game preview available here.

The Switch:  ESPN takes one last look at the SMU quarterback switch from Kyle Padron to J.J. McDermott.

Getting Comfy:  Bret Bloomquist has some nice quotes from Nick Lamaison on getting the first game under his belt.

It's gameday in Dallas.  I'll be attending tonight's game so I'm extra excited for this one.  Any Rusher's in the DFW area leave a comment and maybe we can meet up before the game or after to drink a celebratory beer. 

In my mind, this game will come down to whether or not UTEP can get anything going on the ground.  Joe Banyard and Vernon Frazier didn't have much to work with last week.  Here's hoping, the return of Jerel Watkins and some other UTEP offensive linemen, and the experience of getting a game under their belt, will help the line begin to gel and develop chemistry.

Go Miners!
