Today’s win improved SMU’s record to 22-6 overall and 11-4 in American Athletic Conference play. Connecticut fell to 21-6 and 9-5. The Ponies fell out of the AP Top 25 last week after losing to Temple last Sunday. This win following Wednesday’s drubbing of Houston probably puts SMU back in next week.
SMU’s statement references an auditor; presumably someone from the NCAA. The statement indicates that SMU’s compliance officer was in contact with this auditor in August and September and submitted a formal written response to the situation on October 4.
