The Memphis Tigers will hold host to the Arkansas State Red Wolves at the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on Saturday to start week one of the college football season.
Arkansas State Red Wolves
The Red Wolves had a pretty good 2019 and even got a chance to play in a bowl game at the end of the year. Arkansas State finished 8-5 overall including the bowl win over FIU in the Camellia Bowl.
Layne Hatcher is returning for his Sophomore campaign under center for the Red Wolves and is looking to build on his 2019 season. Hatcher threw for 2,946 yards to go with his 27 touchdowns and 10 interceptions as a true freshman.
Arkansas State’s defense will be led by junior defensive back Antonio Fletcher who was great for them last season. In 2019, Fletcher recorded 58 tackles (42 solo tackles) along with one forced fumble. With almost all of the secondary gone, Fletcher will need to make an even bigger impact defensively for the Red Wolves if they plan on keeping opponents out of the endzone.
The Tigers almost had the perfect season for them in 2019 gathering 12 wins leading up to their loss in the Cotton Bowl against Penn State. Even after a very successful 2019 campaign for most people’s standards, Memphis went through some changes at head coach, OC, and DC in the offseason. There might be kinks to work out early in the year, but I wouldn’t worry too much about that.
Senior Brady White will return at QB for the Tigers after throwing for 4,014 yards, 33 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in 2019. White will have to be at the top of his game this year as the defense is much weaker than in 2019 and he is going to have to bail his team out of a lot of games if necessary.

Free Week 1 NCAA Football Prediction:
I like the Under here as the Memphis team philosophy isn’t the same as years past. Even though both these teams have weak defenses I simply believe that 74 points is too much for the first game of the season. Both teams will be rusty coming out the gate and I think that it may be lower scoring than you think.
