On this edition of the Pony Stampede Podcast, Billy Embody reviews the dramatic win SMU got over Louisiana Tech last week and looks ahead to the Battle of the Iron Skillet between SMU and TCU.
SMU linebacker Isaac Slade-Matautia, who notched his first career interception on Saturday against the Bulldogs, is anticipated a physical game from the Horned Frogs, which feature former five-star running back Zach Evans and quarterback Max Duggan.
“I know their running back is very good. Their running back is very tough, physical,” Slade-Matautia said on Wednesday. “He’s going to run through arm tackles. Same with the quarterback. Quarterback’s a big dude, he’s physical as well. I know he likes to run. Our main focus especially as inside backers is stopping the run, make him throw.
“I know wide receivers are big guys too. So, it’s going to be a challenge. It’s going to be a fun challenge. As a defender, you look forward to these fun challenges and it’s going to be a fun game.”
