It’s the weekend before Halloween and both the Cincinnati Bearcats and SMU Mustangs are hoping to go trick or treating as a winning football team, as they will meet up in Dallas for an American Athletic Conference battle today.

Cincinnati doesn’t actually need to win on Saturday to be a winning team for Halloween. At 6-1 overall and 2-1 in AAC play, the Bearcats have already sewn up a bowl bid and are now just on the hunt for further glory. However, they dropped their last game, surrendering a 17-10 lead en route to a 24-17 loss at Temple last weekend. With the AAC East division still hotly contested, every game is a must-win if UC wants to challenge for that league title.

As for SMU, a win on Saturday will bring them to .500 for the first time this season. The Mustangs are currently 3-4 overall, but they have the same conference mark as the Bearcats (2-1). They are second in the AAC’s West division, trailing in-state rival Houston, so they are also in must-win mode.
