Memphis Tigers Season Prediction, What Will Happen

Memphis has to get its groove back.

The program was sputtering along, and then in 2012 Justin Fuente put the wheels in motion to start turning things around. In came Mike Norvell, and boom – Memphis had one of the fastest teams with one of the most dangerous offenses in college football.

Ryan Silverfield had a strong 2020 after he took over, and everything looked like it was rolling right along with a 3-0 start to 2021 with a win over Mississippi State.

And then the Tigers went 3-6 the rest of the way.

The offense has too many good parts and too many veterans to not be better, but there are way too many 50/50 games on the slate.

Set The Memphis Tigers Regular Season Win Total At … 7.5

Memphis doesn’t have to play Cincinnati, it gets UCF and Houston at home, and the road game at Mississippi State is the opener before anyone gets a chance to jell.

There are enough winnable games to not sweat a bowl game or a winning season, but at Navy, at East Carolina, at Tulane, Tulsa, and at SMU are all going to be tougher than it seems. The Tigers will win most of those, but there will be a loss in there, maybe two, and UCF and Houston really might be that good.

Eight wins would be a bounceback year, but after all the recent success, with this schedule and all the offensive experience, the American Athletic Conference title appearance isn’t asking for the world.
