SMU announced plans yesterday to build an indoor-outdoor facility for its football program with the hopes of bringing prestige back to the program and cement — at least in the eyes of outsiders — the University’s commitment to excellence.
The Memphis football program had an offense that brought it last year.
With each passing week, we inch closer and closer to week one of the 2016 college football season.

Following a 2015 season that saw Temple win 10 games on the strength of an efficient offense and tenacious defense culminate in a spot in the inaugural AAC Championship Game, Owls fans are clamoring for the season to get rolling again.
