Memphis (4-4) vs. East Carolina (2-5) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Both teams were hoping to be in the American Athletic Conference title chase, and both are now trying keep their seasons alive.
East Carolina has lost three straight games – getting rolled by three of the league’s best tams, Temple, Houston and UCF – and now it has to play the spoiler.
The passing game continues to be amazing, cranking up 374 yards against Houston and 406 against UCF, but the defense continues to be a disaster. Everyone bombed away at will on the Pirate secondary, but UCF ran wild last week.
The Pirates are last in the nation in turnover margin – having a hard time coming up with takeaways – and now they’re going against a Memphis team that doesn’t need any help.
Brady White continues to be terrific, throwing for 200 yards or more in every game but one, and now he’s about to be a lock to hit the Pirates for two bills, and with Darrell Henderson back, the ground game will roll for well over 200 for the ninth time in ten games – the offense will be unstoppable.
But ECU will get its share of big plays in, too, but after scoring 36 points total in the last three games, it’s not going to be able to keep up.
