Memphis vs Tulsa Game Preview
Why Memphis Will Win
The offense is still cranking up the yards.
The win over Mississippi State was the one time the team didn’t get to 400 yards in the five games, with the passing attack taking off for over 300 yards in each of the last two.
The offense is great at moving the chains, the defense is holding up fine against the run, and rolling down the field won’t be a problem against a Tulsa defense struggling way too much on third downs.
The Golden Hurricane secondary isn’t making enough big plays, but …
Why Tulsa Will Win
Davis Brin keeps on bombing away.
The wins might not be there, but he’s doing a solid job of pressing secondaries deep, and he should be able to hit the Memphis secondary for 300 yards.
Now the picks have to slow down.
Memphis isn’t going to generate a whole lot of pressure and it doesn’t take the ball away. Brin and the Tulsa offense has to own the clock – not a problem against the Tigers – and the yards should come in bunches against the nation’s second-worst pass D.
What’s Going To Happen
Both teams are struggling way too much.
They both won big shootouts against Arkansas State, they’ve both underachieved overall, and they’re both having huge problems defensively.
Both offenses will go back-and-forth, but Memphis will come up with two second half takeaways to win the turnover battle and survive.
