SMU Mustangs vs UCF Knights 10/5/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The SMU Mustangs will go head-to-head with the UCF Knights at FBC Mortgage Stadium on Wednesday, October 05, 2022, at 7:00 PM ET.


The Mustangs’ preseason goals of winning the AAC championship and ranking among the top Group of 5 teams rapidly gave way to attempting to end their losing run.


The Mustangs, who are currently on a two-game losing slide, will now travel to one of the AAC’s toughest venues.


The team is hoping that the knowledge gained from recent one-score losses to teams like Maryland and TCU would help them perform as well as possible during conference play. 


As strong as the offense was this year, the defense struggled to play as a unit this year, which left a lot to be desired. They are ranked 109th against the run and 94th overall in terms of yards allowed per game on defense.


Given that UCF has one of the greatest ground games in the nation, this is a major issue for Sunday. Although Nelson Paul (20 tackles, 3 sacks) can control this game, Isaac Slade-Matautia (25 tackles) will be expected to lead the way.


  • The Southern Methodist Mustangs are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Southern Methodist’s previous 6 games. 
  • The Mustangs are 3-6 SU in their previous 9 contests.

SMU Mustangs vs UCF Knights Predictions 10/5/2022


The one setback for UCF this season came at the hands of Louisville, and while it was hardly a crushing defeat, there’s no denying that the Knights did not play very well in their previous contests.


They beat Georgia Tech by 17 points last week, whereas they defeated Georgia Tech by 26 points two weeks ago. For this team, turning things around required both being healthy and reliable.


This team appears to have what it takes to win the AAC and contend for the top Group of 5 teams now that October is getting underway. 


The Knights did well to keep fit themselves this season, although not having an empty injury list like their rival.


The only other player included on the injury report is Amari Johnson (leg), while Jordan Davis (undisclosed) is still out at the tight end. A thin receiving core means that Johnson’s health will need to be watched before kickoff.


  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Central Florida’s previous 6 matches. 
  • The Central Florida Knights are 6-1 SU in their previous 7 meetings. 
  • The Knights are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games at home.

SMU Mustangs vs. UCF Knights. The NCAAF pick for this match is the UCF Knights. UCF should have a significant advantage in this AAC matchup given that everything is going in their favor for this one and that they will be playing at home.


Because UCF is one of the best rushing teams in the nation, the Mustangs’ inability to stop the run will be too much for them to handle as well.


The Knights will be able to manage the time, and by managing the speed as well, they won’t have any trouble winning this one. The UCF Knights will win by a predicted score of 35-30.
