  Shane Buechele threw four touchdown passes, two to Tyler Page, and No. 18 SMU broke away from undermanned Temple 47-23 Saturday. The game was pushed back from its original Thursday date while Temple dealt with virus-related issues. The Owls were missing 15 players who were in COVID-19 protocol. SMU led 20-16 before Buechele connected with Kylen Granson on a 24-yard TD pass on the first play of the fourth quarter. The Mustangs (7-1, 4-1 American Athletic Conference) scored four touchdowns in the first 7 1/2 minutes of the period. Temple (1-4, 1-4) scored on the first play of the game, with wide receiver Randle Jones going 75 yards on a screen pass from Trad Beatty. Page, who came into the game fifth on the Mustangs this year in yards receiving, caught nine passes for 131 yards.

Playing in the slot most of the game, Page took advantage of a soft middle of the Temple defense and then used his speed to rack up most of his yards after making the catch. Buechele was 24 for 35 for 355 yards. Tayvon Ruley's 3-yard touchdown run helped Temple build a 13-10 halftime lead. Buechele put SMU ahead for good when he found Page with a 44-yard strike on the first drive of the second half. In the fourth quarter, Buechele added a 33-yard TD toss to Rashee Rice while Tyler Lavine had a 2-yard touchdown plunge and TaMerik Williams added a 49-yard scoring scamper. - AP College Football

  Then-backup SMU quarterback Terrance Gipson came into spell Shane Buechele on Saturday with the Mustangs up by 34 points in the fourth quarter. But on the third play of Gipson's night, he fumbled the ball away. And the next drive, Buechele was back in the game. This decision, Gipson told The Dallas Morning News was indicative of why he felt he needed to enter the transfer portal. Gipson officially put his name on Monday. "The head man just didn't have faith in my play," Gipson said of head coach Sonny Dykes. He said it was shown in the decision to take him out on Saturday, but it wasn't the only reason.

"That's not certainly like, just because he took me out," Gipson said regarding his decision to transfer. "If I am in a game, and I'm messing up, I would preach for them to take me out...It's not just because of that. It's been a long process and a long set of things that led up to that." Dykes declined through a team spokesman to respond to Gipson's comments, but he addressed the QB's transfer earlier in Monday afternoon during his weekly media availability. "I'm supportive of him and wish him the best," Dykes said. "And I hope he finds what he's looking for. He's a good football player and a good kid and I want to see him have a ton of success." - Dallas Morning News

  In one week, Shane Buechele went from his worst passer efficiency rating in two seasons at SMU to his best. The Mustangs enjoyed a pretty good bounce-back as well. Buechele threw three touchdown passes, Ulysses Bentley IV and Tyler Lavine ran for two scores apiece and No. 22 SMU rebounded from its first loss with a 51-37 victory over Navy on Saturday night. The Mustangs (6-1, 3-1 American Athletic) scored 30 consecutive points from late in the second quarter to early in the fourth, a run that started with 10 points in the final 7 seconds of the first half. After the first of Buechele's two scoring tosses to Rashee Rice with 7 seconds to go before halftime, Nelson Smith fumbled a handoff and SMU's Gary Wiley won the scramble for the loose ball at the Navy 18 with a second remaining. Chris Naggar's 34-yard field goal made it 31-17. - SMU/AP College Football

  OCT 19 AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Chris Naggar, SMU, Sr., K, Arlington, Texas,...Naggar scored 13 points, including the game-winning field goal in overtime, to help SMU to a 37-34 win at Tulane.

  Brandon Crossley ended the first overtime possession with an interception and Chris Naggar made a 34-yard field goal to give No. 17 SMU a 37-34 victory over Tulane on Friday night. Crossley intercepted Tulane freshman Michael Pratt's pass to put the Mustangs (5-0, 3-0 American Athletic) in position to win with the field goal. SMU is 5-0 for the second straight season, a feat it last accomplished in 1983. The Green Wave (2-3, 0-3) rallied to force overtime on Merek Glover's 27-yard field goal with 1:30 left. "We went blow for blow with them," Tulane coach Willie Fritz said. "Unfortunately, they get the last one in. I saw a lot of good things from our guys. Really was impressed with the way we battled and fought back." After Tulane took a 31-27 lead early in the fourth quarter on Pratt's 7-yard touchdown, the Mustangs pulled ahead 34-31 lead on Shane Buechele's 10-yard pass to Danny Gray. Buechele completed 23 of 37 passes for 384 yards and two touchdowns. He entered the game second nationally in passing yards. Rashee Rice had seven receptions for 139 yards and a touchdown, and Gray added five catches for 133 yards and a touchdown and had a 32-yard scoring run. Ulysses Bentley ran for 94 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. - SMU/AP College Football

  SMU will not have wide receiver Reggie Roberson Jr. and running back TJ McDaniel for the rest of the season, head coach Sonny Dykes confirmed during his media availability Monday. Both Roberson Jr. and McDaniel will have surgery, Dykes said. Roberson appeared to injure his left knee during the third quarter of SMU’s 30-27 win over Memphis on Oct. 3. McDaniel appeared to suffer a lower-leg injury on the first play of that game. Both players were starters and huge pieces for the Mustangs. It is the second straight season-ending injury for Roberson Jr., who missed the final six games with a foot injury last year. Roberson Jr. had 22 receptions for 474 yards and five touchdowns thus far in 2020. McDaniel, in his first season as a starter with a real chance to prove himself, was having a strong start to the campaign. He had 303 yards on the ground with his 60 carries and a touchdown. An NFL prospect, Roberson Jr. still has eligibility remaining for next season, should he choose to come back. It’s unclear what his timeline for a return is and if he’d be healthy enough to participate in pre-draft workouts. - The Dallas Morning News

  Roberson Jr. left in the third quarter of Saturday's game after suffering a non-contact injury to his left knee. Roberson Jr. is SMU's most dynamic receiver. That was evidenced by his 243-yard performance on Saturday before the injury. This will leave the Mustangs needing players like Rashee Rice and Danny Gray - receivers that both struggled on Saturday - to step up in his absence. Roberson Jr. is regarded as an NFL prospect, and probably could have entered the draft after last season. It is unclear how long he will be sidelined, or if this injury will impact his decision to return to SMU, or enter the draft.

This could potentially be the second-straight season-ending injury for Roberson Jr. He missed the final six games of the 2019 campaign after suffering a foot injury in the first quarter of the Mustangs' win over Houston in October. Roberson Jr. left West Virginia after his freshman season in 2017. He has 2,079 receiving yards at SMU, including 474 this season. He has 17 total touchdowns, including five this season. He was averaging 21.5 yards per catch before the injury. - Dallas Morning News

  Reggie Roberson Jr. became the first SMU receiver to total more than 200 yards receiving in a game, catching five balls for 243 in a 30-27 win over Memphis. The senior is among five receivers in the nation since 2015 to go over 200 yards on so few catches. Highlighting his day were touchdowns of 85 and 70 yards. The man throwing to Roberson was Shane Buechele, who passed for a career-high 474 yards and three TDs and had a career-high 501 yards of total offense. Roberson's other 200-yard receiving game was last season, when he had 250 against Arkansas State. - AP College Football

Buechele, who registered his eighth career game with 300 passing yards and his fourth career 400-yard game, ended Week 5 with 1,326 passing yards, which leads all NCAA FBS players. - American Athletic Conference Football
