Memphis (6-4) vs. Cincinnati (4-6) Game Preview
Date: Friday, Nov. 18
Game Time: 8:00 pm
Venue: Nippert Stadium, Cincinnati, OH
Network: CBS Sports Network
Technically, Memphis still has a shot at winning a piece of the West division, but it’s not going to happen – so it’s spoiler time. The Tigers will have bigger fish to fry next week against Houston, but first, beating Cincinnati and ruining its bowl hopes comes first.
Cincinnati needs to beat Memphis and Tulsa to get bowl eligible, but there’s one problem – the team can’t score.
The Bearcat defense has been okay, but the O has scored three points in each of its last two games and has scores 13 points or fewer in four of the last five games.
The Memphis defense has been a problem, giving up big yards in all ways and getting bombed on by Navy, Tulsa and South Florida in three of the last four games, but Cincinnati isn’t going to figure it out now.
The Bearcats have a defense that can keep this close, but the offense will make too many mistakes and won’t be able to keep up the pace. The MU attack will be too balanced and too good, even on the road against a team desperate for a win.
