With eight receptions for 163 yards, Sutton tied the SMU single-game program record with four TD catches, and his 40-yard scoring reception broke a 10-all first-quarter tie and broke the game open. Hicks, 20 of 39 for 312 yards passing with one interception, also connected with Sutton on 62-, 4-, 35-yard TD passes.
Jones gained 74 yards on 13 carries, and his 1-yard plunge on fourth-and-goal in the third quarter was set up by Demerick Gary's interception of a pass by the Mean Green's Mason Fine. Jones also scored on a 47-yard run in the fourth.
The Mustangs defense held North Texas (1-1) to 69 yards rushing, scored a safety, and twice stopped the Mean Green on downs.
