Memphis will look to start their AAC slate off on the right foot when they welcome in Temple on Thursday night.
Temple enters play already with an AAC victory under their belts as they took down SMU last week.
The Temple Owls have put together back to back victories and have surprisingly been a top offense in the conference through the first 5 games of the season.
Temple has averaged 34.2 points per game, which is extremely high for them, considering they’re a run first type of team.
Temple has put up 48 points and 45 points in back to back weeks and will get a look at the best defense they’ve seen this season as Memphis allows just 18.8 points per game.
The Owls have been a much more balanced offense as well this season, as they’re opening up the playbook a bit more. That comes from the run game having success early.
Temple has averaged 350 yards on the season with 200 coming from the pass game and 150 on the ground. QB Phillip Walker has thrown for 970 yards on the year, but has 6 touchdowns to 7 interceptions. Taking care of the ball and not giving the Tigers offense a short field.
The Memphis Tigers got their first real test of the season last week against Ole Miss and their undefeated record came to a crashing halt.
Memphis was torched by Chad Kelly and company as the Tigers suffered their first loss of the season by 20.
Still, Memphis enters AAC play with a lot of confidence as their offense has been one of the best in the nation.
Memphis has averaged 45.8 points per game, which ranks 6th in the nation. Their offense stems from their pass game, that averages 308.5 yards per game.
QB Riley Ferguson has 11 touchdowns on the season and thrown for 1186 yards. Against Ole Miss, Ferguson was certainly tested with the pressure up front, but still finished with 343 yards. Finishing drives was the biggest issue for him as he threw 3 interceptions.
Ferguson gets a very tough Temple defense here that is going to poise the same problems as Ole Miss did for them last week.
