East Carolina Pirates
East Carolina has had a poor season but it did just blowout Cincinnati, which is have an even poorer season. That doesn’t mean all is lost for East Carolina. The Pirates have the chance to pull a large upset in their final game of 2017.
Gardner Minshew threw for 444 yards in the air and four touchdowns. Reid Herring threw a 20-yard halfback pass for a touchdown to pad the team passing numbers a little more. The running game was adequate with 33 carries for 114 yards but most of the damage came against a pretty terrible Cincinnati secondary.
It won’t be so easy going up against Memphis. The Tigers’ offense gets most of the attention but their defense has played some tough games this season. It’s not the steadiest of units — it gives up its fair share of points. But it’s opportunistic because it can be. With a powerful offense, one score won’t hurt Memphis as much it does another team so the Tigers can afford to play for turnovers.
Since taking over the starting quarterback job, Minshew has thrown only four interceptions in 250 attempts. He has to continue taking care of the ball if ECU wants to hang in this one.
Memphis rolled to its sixth win in a row last week against SMU and in doing so guaranteed that it would finish in sole-possession of first-place in the American West.
Riley Ferguson completed 21 of 27 passes for 320 yard and two touchdowns, though he did throw one pick. Darrell Henderson did a lot of the damage in the backfield. He ran it 10 times for 147 yards, including a 70-yard rumble for a touchdown. He scored twice and the Tigers added five more touchdowns on the ground before it was all said and done. As a team, Memphis ran 46 times for 333 yards.
Memphis has scored at least 41 points in each of its last four games. That stretch also includes a 50-burger and lats week’s 66. There isn’t another offense in the American West that can score like the Tigers can and based on what we’ve seen all season, Eastern Carolina definitely can’t challenge that claim.
