What’s Going To Happen
Just be very, very careful here, Memphis.
After the brilliant performance and win over UCLA, it should be letdown time for the Tigers before the American Athletic schedule starts to kick in. But they can’t just blow off Southern Illinois.
The Salukis have an aggressive defense that’s come up with seven takeaways in just two games helped by a defensive front that’s crushing everything in the backfield with nine sacks so far.
The Memphis secondary is suspect after getting ripped up by Josh Rosen, and the offense isn’t great on going on long, sustained drives. Considering SIU converts over 48% of its third down chances, this should be yet another interesting fight.
Memphis will wake up in the second half to pull ahead on a big play from the special teams, but QB Riley Ferguson will lead the way on two good scoring drives to pull away just enough to breathe easier.
