Going bowling (well, bowl eligible at least)...

For the first time since the 1987 death penalty, SMU is bowl eligible. SMU went out to Tulsa and overcame a 17 point defecit to make it happen. With a win over Rice next week, SMU will have a bowl spot all but locked up. The most likely candidate is the Armed Forces bowl in Ft Worth against cross-Metroplex rival TCU for a 6-6 record. They may get other options if they go 7-5.

If you are interested in SMU's death penalty and want to learn exactly how a school ended up in such a mess or just want some interesting college football reading, I highly recommend "A Payroll to Meet" by David Whitford. It covers the ground thoroughly and is still a good read.
