Tulsa (2-7) vs. Memphis (5-4) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Memphis is out of the West title hunt in a disappointing season, but it’s a win away from doing bowling, and it had better get it now. They’re in trouble if they’re no good enough to beat Tulsa, and then have to face SMU on the road and Houston.
Tulsa finally got a win over an FBS team, but it was only against UConn. Cathartic, the Golden Hurricane rolled to a 49-19 victory. With winnable games against Navy and SMU to close, they might be able to finish on a high note, but …
They’re not going to handle the Memphis offense.
The running of Darrell Henderson should be enough to go big against one of the nation’s worst run defenses, but the porous Memphis defense isn’t going to be a rock, either. The Golden Hurricane will keep up a little bit, but the Tigers are too potent and too balanced.
It’ll be a shootout, but Memphis will be far better equipped and far better when it has to be in the second half.
