The last game of the 2022 season for BYU Football will be against the SMU Mustangs in the New Mexico Bowl on Saturday night.
It will be one 7-5 team versus another in Albuquerque. BYU last played on Nov. 26 at Stanford, winning 36-26. SMU (out of the AAC) last played on the 26 as well, beating Memphis in a close one, 34-31.
BYU and SMU have played four times overall. This will be their second meeting in a bowl game. Some of you may remember the 1980 Holiday Bowl game, in which BYU came back to win, 46-45. SMU is a slight favorite headed into Saturday’s game.
