We have reached week five of the college football season and most teams are now in the conference part of their schedule.
In this match up it’s an AAC showdown between two teams who haven’t suffered a loss.
The Memphis Tigers make the trip to Bright House Networks Stadium to take on the UCF Knights. The Knights have won the last nine match ups played between the two teams.
For the Memphis Tigers the philosophy on how they are going to win games is pretty simple. Score as many points as they can and hope that the defense can make just a few stops and that will be enough to come out on top, and so far that strategy has worked.
They come into this game with a 3-0 record including a big win over the UCLA Bruins, a game they were underdogs in.
For the Tigers it’s Riley Ferguson who has led the charge on offense so far. He comes into this game having thrown for 783 yards and eight touchdowns.
He has also thrown only two interceptions which is really impressive for the number of times he has thrown the ball around this year.
To win this game the Tigers need the defense to step up. The offense is going to be fine in this game, but the defense needs to find a way to slow down the Knights who have had a dominant offense so far this year.
If they can do that they will pull the upset in this huge game.
On the other side of this match up is the UCF Knights who have only played two games so far this year, but they have looked really good in this games.
They have scored a total of 99 points in the two games, while only giving up 27. The Knights are led by quarterback McKenzie Milton who has thrown for 538 yards and five touchdowns.
Those stats would probably be higher but he was pulled in game one because it was such a blowout. Look for him to really try and sling it around early and the Tigers defense has really struggled so far this season.
This is going to be a huge test for the Knights defense. They haven’t faced a quarterback like the Tigers have and if they want to win this game they are going to need to step up, and play better then they did in the first couple games of the season.
