The surprising undefeated Memphis Tigers head to Tulsa to do battle with the Golden Hurricane Friday night under the lights.
Memphis has been the most under the radar undefeated team, but the nation has taken notice as they knocked off SEC participant Ole Miss last Saturday.
Tulsa comes in dropping their last decisions to East Carolina 30-17.
Kick off is set for 8:00 PM.
Memphis could make a case for being a Top 25 team right now. They come in off one of the most impressive wins in program history as they knocked off Ole Miss 37-24 at home last week. This is the same Ole Miss team that scored 45 on Alabama and beat them earlier in the season.
With their win, Memphis improved to 6-0 on the season and now has wins over Bowling Green, Cincinnati, and Ole Miss to put on their impressive resume.
QB Paxton Lynch threw for 384 yards and three touchdowns in a performance that saw him go 39 of 53. Lynch leads a Memphis offense that is averaging 532.8 yards per game.
WR Anthony Miller continues to be his go to target as he had yet another phenomenal game as he finished with 132 yards on 10 receptions with a touchdown.
Lynch and Miller will be going against a team that is allowing 525 yards per game.
The Golden Hurricane’s offense has been able to compete with the high flying, high scoring offenses they’ve ran into as they average 550.5 yards per game and are scoring 33.3 points per game.
That however wasn’t the case against East Carolina last week as they scored just 17 points. The two big plays in the game came from a Tulsa fumble and a 100 yard interception return from East Carolina. That was a 14 point swing that ultimately put an end to the Golden Hurricane.
QB Dane Evans finished just 19 for 40 as he struggled to hit his receivers with the constant pressure in his face. He ended up with 288 yards while throwing a touchdown and that pick six.
WR Joshua Atkinson finished with 8 receptions for 136 yards as he continues to flourish. Atkinson has 36 receptions for 576 yards and a pair of touchdowns to his credit.
Tulsa’s defense has been a big problem all season long, especially with allowing the big play. They’re allowing the opposition to score 34.8 points per game.
