And, perhaps most importantly, Catalon was a closer. With SMU looming at 21-19 in the third quarter, Duke Catalon burst for a 52-yard touchdown run to push the lead to a more comfortable distance. When SMU reared back early in the fourth, it was Catalon’s 16-yard touchdown run that put the game away for good.
We saw Dukes second gear for a long stretch. If he can keep it up, we should win 10 games.
