East Carolina football is at No. 23 SMU today. Here are three Mustang players to know:
There is myriad of playmakers on the Mustang offense, but when QB Shane Buechele really needs a play, he looks to Proche. The senior is an All-American candidate who ranks second in the country with 74 receptions. He also is coming off a season-high 13 catches against Memphis last week.
Denbow is solid as a starting safety on defense, but most unique about him is he also is the Mustangs’ punter. He has a long of 72 yards to help boost his season average to 39.11 on 27 attempts. SMU also uses starting quarterback Shane Buechele on pooch punts.
SMU’s starting running back has 17 total touchdowns this year, which is 12 more than the Pirates’ leader in quarterback Holton Ahlers’ five rushing TDs. Jones just had his lowest rushing output, carrying 11 times for 22 yards and a touchdown versus Memphis a week ago.
