Memphis and Cincinnati play in the AAC Championship game that has the makings to be a winner take all. Taking a look at the rankings the committee sure looks like they have positioned Memphis and Cincinnati to play in the NY6 bowl with a win in the championship game.
Memphis is currently the top-ranked team in the Group of Five sitting at #18. The Tigers have run through the last half of their schedule winning the last six matchups and securing a spot in the American Championship game.
Cincinnati has had a fantastic year going 10-2 on the season. The Bearcats losses have both been to ranked teams with one of those games losing to the number one team in the country in Ohio State. The Bearcats still have a shot at the New Year Six bowl with a win on Saturday and hope to get another shot at jumping Boise State.
Memphis has had the luxury of a steady quarterback in 2019 with its leader Brady White. White has led the Tigers in passing yards with 3307 adding 32 touchdowns in the regular season. With the production at quarterback, the Tigers have been able to score 41 points a game with over 485 yards of total offense a game.
The offense has been rolling through the air and we should again see fireworks in this game which is a back to back game being played for both teams. A New Years Six bowl is surely on the line for Memphis so they will be coming out as hot as they can on a neutral site.
Brady White should surely be in the thick of things on Saturday but we will also see a heavy dose of Kenneth Gainwell on the ground. The running back has 12 touchdowns with 1300 rushing yards that should aid the Tigers in the shootout with Cincinnati.
Cincinnati started off their season at 1-1 losing against the top-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. They then rattled off nine straight wins until last week where they lost their finale to the Memphis Tigers. The Bearcats, however, struggled to get through the AAC schedule and had many close calls that could have easily turned into losses.
We will see what the Bearcats have on Saturday facing the Tigers for the second straight week. Cincinnati prides itself on the run game and Memphis is a prime candidate because of injuries upfront to be vulnerable.
The Bearcats had to abandon the run game last week with them getting behind early. We should see a much more balanced team if the Cincy defense can hold up on Saturday.

Memphis is favored by almost double digits. They should win this game for the second time in two weeks against the Bearcats. They are the better team here and have way more to play for as they would be the shoo-in favorite to win the G5 representation.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over 57.5.
When teams meet for the second time in the season things usually get a little ugly on the defensive side. Both teams know each others strengths and that should play into the offense’s hands for both teams.
Cincinnati was able to gain some traction late in the second half of last week and seems to be more confident going in this Saturday. Look for Cincinnati to play this one close and control the ground game more than they did a week ago. The total for this game should squeak over.
