Pony NATE-tion: Retooled Mustangs, Bobcats face off in 2020

Pony NATE-tion: Retooled Mustangs, Bobcats face off in 2020 opener
Sonny Dykes, Jake Spavital coached together in 2016 at Cal

With all that has gone on in the world, the start of the season appears to have snuck up on us. Would you look at that? It’s game week! SMU will travel down to San Marcos to kick off the 2020 season against the Texas State Bobcats. Expectations are lofty on the Hilltop once again after a 10-win season in head coach Sonny Dykes’ second season with the Ponies.

The Mustangs open up with a familiar opponent in Texas State, a team that the Ponies steamrolled last year, 47-17. Texas State head coach Jake Spavital is more than familiar to Dykes as well, as he served as Dykes’ offensive coordinator at Cal in 2016. Spavital is coming off a tough first year as the head man in San Marcos, as the Bobcats only won three games in 2019. The football scene in San Marcos has been quite bleak, as Texas State has won 13 games in the last five years and has not cleared four wins since 2014. This turnaround project for Spavital is going to be very difficult.

An opening season easy win is good for the ponies.
