SMU is being looked as a potential top team within the non-BCS ranks, but people need to be reminded last year they were 8-5 and went to their first bowl game in over 25 years. June Jones is a good coach but it will be at least a few more years before the Mustangs can hang with TCU and become one of the top non-BCS schools. TCU's defense will be challenged in June Jones pass happy offense that put up some good numbers, and perhaps put up some good points.
TCU is ranked 6th while SMU is 67th in the Sporting News top 100. This game has a 9 p.m. eastern kick off time and is on ESPN on September 24th.
