(TSX / STATS) -- SMU's 38-16 upset victory over No. 11 Houston on Saturday night in Dallas allowed the host Mustangs to match their win total of three games the previous two seasons.
SMU coach Chad Morris and his program also evened the score against Houston coach Tom Herman, who took a jab at the Mustangs before this season when explaining the growth of the Cougars' program after finishing 13-1 with a No. 8 ranking last season.
In May, Herman said the Cougars were no longer content with a 7-5 record as a program before stating, "I hear there's a private school in Dallas that's really trying to get to seven wins."
