Bowl season is finally upon is! In this game it’s the Birmingham Bowl when the Memphis Tigers and Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Legion Field.
This is the first meeting ever between the two teams.
The Memphis Tigers have had a nice season but have to have a sour taste in their mouth after their last game against UCF.
They were dominating the first half of the game and it looked like they would be the AAC champs. In the second half of the game they really struggled and ended up losing the game by 14 points.
For the Tigers it’s all about the offense averaging 43.6 points per game. They used a balanced attack but actually, the running game is actually a bit better.
On the defensive side of the ball they aren’t great giving up 31.5 points per game and in this game that defense is going to need to be beter.
In this game it’s going to take a complete game. They can’t jump out to the big lead and expect they will be able to come out with a win.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
On the other side of this matchup is the Wake Forest Demon Deacons who showed a lot of heart the last few weeks of the season.
After losing their starting quarterback they went into their last game against Duke needing a victory as 9.5 point favorites.
Not only did they win the game they took it to the Blue Devils winning by a final score of 59-7. At quarterback the Demon Deacons are led by Jamie Newman who has thrown for 755 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions.
Chances are this game is going to be a shootout so they are going to need to to have another big game from Newman and a total team effort.
