Prediction & Game Preview To Come
FAU Stadium, Boca Raton, FL, ESPN
Memphis, American Athletic, 8-4
It was supposed to be a rebuilding season, but under Mike Norvell in his first season, the team has a chance to equal last year’s 9-4 record. There were a few rocky spots in late October, but everything kicked in once November started, winning three of the last four games including a shocker over Houston. While he hasn’t been Paxton Lynch, Junior QB Riley Ferguson has filled in well for a first round NFL draft pick throwing for over 3,326 yards and 28 scores and nine picks. He’s not a runner, but he has four scores on the ground, and he’s been steady.
Western Kentucky, Conference USA, 10-3
The two-time Conference USA champion will bomb, bomb, and bomb away more. One of the most fun and explosive offenses in college football, Jeff Brohm’s bunch has scored 44 or more in each of the last nine games. The losses? To Alabama, in overtime to Vanderbilt, and in a 55-52 shootout to Louisiana Tech.
