What you need to know about Memphis

The Tigers came up short against the Tulane Green Wave last week, falling 35-21. No one had a standout game offensively for Memphis, but the Tigers got scores from WR Calvin Austin III, TE Sean Dykes, and WR Tahj Washington. One of the most thrilling moments was Austin III’s 59-yard TD reception in the first quarter.

The Memphis offense is still one of the most prolific in the country, averaging 468.1 yards and 31.8 points per game. Quarterback Brady White has thrown for 2,850 yards and 26 touchdowns with just eight interceptions. Austin has been his top target with 53 catches for 951 yards and nine touchdowns.

What you need to know about Houston

Meanwhile, Houston was completely in charge four weeks ago, breezing past the South Florida Bulls 56-21 at home. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 28-0. QB Clayton Tune went off for Houston as he passed for three TDs and 165 yards on 25 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 120 yards. The Cougars have been plus-6 in turnover margin this season and winning that battle could be key on Saturday.

Houston’s win lifted the Cougars to 3-3, while Memphis’ loss dropped the Tigers down to 6-3. Memphis’ offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Houston defensive front that amassed four sacks against South Florida, so we’ll see if they are up to the task.
