Mustangs Take 31-0 Lead Into Halftime

SMU got off to a hot start offensively, scoring on the third play of the game, and later extending their lead to 31 over the Nevada Wolfpack in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl.

Freshmen quarterback Kyle Padron threw for 303 yards in the first half, an SMU bowl game record. The previous record was 281 yards in one game. Padron accomplished that feat in one half.

He found Cole Beasley for a 2 yard touchdown reception with 1:17 to go in the first half. Beasley has 88 receiving yards and one touchdown. Sanders has been Padron’s most productive receiver, catching three balls for 93 yards and a touchdown.

The Nevada offense has continually struggled, gaining only 101 yards and five first downs. Neither team has a turnover.

It looks like some rain clouds are moving in over Honolulu, so it may be a wet second half.
