New Orleans will be playing host to college football this Friday night when the Memphis Tigers visit to square off against the Tulane Green Wave at Yulman Stadium.
Memphis will come into the game after a hard-fought victory against Temple, 34-27.
The Green Wave will be coming into the game after a victory of their own, defeating UMass on the road last week 41-13.
The Memphis Tigers were able to come away with the win 41-13 against Tulane last season and lead the all time series between the two schools 20-11
Tulane Green Wave
Tulane hasn’t been much of a threat through the air this season, but they have been able to keep the momentum building on the ground by averaging 246.6 rushing yards per game.
They only through the ball 21 times last week against UMass, but were able to gain 280 yards with the ground attack on 64 carries. The Green Wave is led by running back Dontrell Hilliard with 384 yards on the season and five touchdowns.
Tulane has found the win column three times this season, but they have yet to beat any real competition. Their offense could be exposed this week for exactly what it is this week, a one-sided machine without much room for error.
They average 31 points per game this season, but in their losses against Wake Forrest and Navy, they only scored 17 points combined.
On defense, Tulane has only given up 22.4 points per game, but this by far be their biggest test of the season.
Escaped with the win might be the best way to describe the performance of Memphis last week against the Temple Owls.
While the score board may have been somewhat misleading, the truth of the matter is that the high-powered Memphis offense has some difficulty getting anything going against the Temple defense.
A touchdown was needed both from the defense and special teams in order for the Tigers to win the game by seven points.
Quarterback Riley Ferguson has looked great this season, throwing for a total of 1,360 yards with 11 touchdown passes while only being picked off five times.
He struggled against the Owls defense, only racking up 174 yards through the air. Memphis still comes into this week’s game averaging 281.6 passing yards a gave and an average of 43.4 points per contest.
The passing defense for Memphis has struggled the last two weeks, but should be able to tighten up against a Tulane offense that is the second worst passing offense in the country.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Prediction
The Memphis Tigers have struggled to get anything going on offense in their previous two games, but this week will be a perfect opportunity to get out of the funk they have been in.
After facing the defense’s of Ole Miss and Temple, they should have no problem going up against Tulane.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Memphis -11
Stopping the run is the strong point of the Memphis defense and they should be pretty well set to put the brakes on the Green Wave’s offensive attack.
The Tigers should be able to jump out to a sizable lead which will cause Tulane to get out of their comfort zone and go to the air. I like the passing defense of Memphis over the ability of Tulane to move the ball down the field trying to play catch.
