This is an important early game in the AAC.
Both of these teams are contenders in their respective divisions but they could go from that status to favourite with an early win. At least Memphis could.
I like how the AAC is trying to grab our attention with this one on Saturday night.
Might be hard to compete with USC vs Stanford in terms of the marquee but this should be a good game.
The Tigers escaped with a win over Louisiana-Monroe last week. They did not come anywhere close to covering a huge number but let’s not be too harsh. It is still Memphis.
The biggest question the Tigers have to be asking themselves is what is up with Riley Ferguson.
He was terrible after showing a lot of promise last year. Luckily the ground game came alive.
If Memphis is going to compete Ferguson has to be the one that leads them there. It is pretty disconcerting that the defense allowed the Tigers to be outgained against ULM.
One of the results that got lost last week was UCF’s destruction of FIU on Thursday night.
The Knights put up 61 points…and they did it by scorching them through the air.
FIU is no defensive powerhouse but still McKenzie Milton looked great in the opener.
He threw for more than 360 yards and was super accurate. If he keeps it up this UCF team can play with anyone in the AAC.
For UCF to push USF in the division they cannot afford a slip up at home. They do have a couple of games coming up against Power 5 schools but have to keep focused on the task at hand.

This should be an exciting game. I expect Ferguson to bounce back and both of these teams could be bombing away at each other all game long. Being at home might be enough to swing the advantage.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UCF -2.5
I am convinced that if one team is going to play defense in this one it will be the Knights. They have some players up front, especially Shaquem Griffin, the best pass rusher in the league.
These teams have not met since 2013 and for both programs that was a lifetime ago, both have switched coaches and styles of play. UCF at home looks really good this week.
