SMU Mustangs College Football 2021 Preview: Offense

– The offense rolls on. Head coach Sonny Dykes and offensive coordinator Garrett Riley found the groove last year with an average attack of nearly 500 meters and 39 points per game. There is balance, persistence, and enough explosion to keep things moving in various ways.

Eight starters are back, but two have disappeared from the offensive line and QB Shane Buechele must be replaced. Neither area is of particular concern as the quarterback situation is full of strong options.

Preston Stone was a big recruit who could push for the gig right away, Derek Green has had a strong spring in his sophomore year, and Oklahoma transfer Tanner Mordecai could take the job and run away with it. It’s a good situation, but it will take a little longer.

– The reception corps is great. All-star tight end Kylen Granson is done, but the Mustangs bring three standout options to the transfer portal, starting with Grant Calcaterra, who has caught 41 passes and scored nine goals in Oklahoma.

The top three receivers are back, led by Rashee Rice, a top target who has had a 48 catch season, and Reggie Roberson averages nearly 22 yards per claw.

– The passing game may be bubbly, but the running backs produced big numbers in this attack. Ulysses Bentley has a backing potential of 1,000 yards and should be pushing for double-digit touchdowns again – he ran for eleven last season – but he won’t be carrying the load alone if Tre Siggers comes from North Texas.

They will all work behind a decent offensive line that knows how to get the job done. It won’t explode, but the group of veterans – all five starters are expected to be back – know how to work within the system. Tackle Jaylon Thomas and Guard Hayden Howerton are two of the best in the American Athletic Conference.
