South Florida Bulls Preview

The Bulls narrowly defeated a struggling UConn Huskies team in their most recent game. This was a 24-21 outing, with the largest deficit being 21-11 going into the fourth quarter. Thankfully, the Bulls had two rushing touchdowns in the fourth to seal it.

With their record at .500, it still offers a successful season. They are currently sixth in the American Conference and only have a few games left to finish the season on a high note. Defeating a quality contender in the conference would also boost their confidence moving into the remainder of their schedule.

Offensively they are not a bad squad, as they average 28.0 points per game and put up 437.5 total yards each game. Defensively they suffer, as they allow 34.3 points per game and give up 444.1 total yards. This negative ratio will impact their performance against the Tigers.

The Bulls have found success with quarterback Byrum Brown (12 TD, 6 INT), who has 1,865 yards on the season. He also ranks 78th in the nation with a QBR of 56.9, but must mitigate his turnovers for their chances at success.

Memphis Tigers Preview

The Tigers showed that they are an offensive threat with their current two-game winning streak. They defeated the North Texas Mean Green 45-42, with the Tigers losing the lead briefly in the fourth quarter but eventually scoring the winning touchdown with 10 seconds remaining.

They are slightly ahead of the Bulls in the American Conference, currently sitting at fourth. They need to accumulate as many wins as possible to help secure their conference, which is still a possibility.

Their offense has been thriving lately, especially with 45 points scored in their last two games. They currently average 36.8 points per game on 439.1 total yards. On defense they hold teams to 25.1 points per contest and give up 398.6.

The Tigers have shown to be an offensive threat with QB Seth Henigan (16 TD, 7 INT), who has 2,186 yards and a QBR of 60.2 that ranks 63rd in the nation. In their recent win against the Mean Green, he completed 78.6 percent of his passes, which was his highest average this season.
