What’s Going To Happen
Memphis has the inside track on taking the West, but it still has a whole lot of work to do. Next up, it has to deal with a desperate Tulane team that has to come up with a victory to stay alive in the bowl hunt.
The Green Wave has lost their last two games, but with a dangerous ground game and a not-that-bad defense, they should be able to get past Cincinnati and East Carolina over the next two weeks. However, they need one more win – and take those two – to become bowl eligible.
Memphis is on a three-game winning streak, surviving last week’s win over Houston and taking down Navy the week before. Starting this week, it gets three of its last four games at home, including the one key date against SMU.
Unfortunately for the Green Wave, the secondary isn’t good enough to handle Riley Ferguson and the fantastic Memphis passing game that’s among the nation’s best and leads the American Athletic.
Unfortunately for the Tigers, the run defense can’t stop anyone, and now it has to deal with the devastating Tulane ground game.
Tulane will crank up over 200 yards, but it won’t do anything through the air. It’ll control the game at times, but Ferguson will get hot again, he’ll flirt with 400 yards, and the Tigers will answer several Green Wave scoring drives by bombing away.
Memphis will get by, but it’ll be a battle for the D.
