The Memphis Tigers will look to start the 2019 season 2-0 this Saturday when they play host to the Southern University Jaguars.
The Tigers are coming off a 10-15 win against Ole Miss last week and will be looking for another win at home.
The Jaguars are still trying to find the win column after falling to McNeese in their season opener. The two teams will take the field at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee at noon this Saturday.
The Southern University Jaguars will be on the road again this week, still looking for their first win of the season.
The Jaguars made it close last week after scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter at McNeese,but still fell short 28-34.
Southern was able to rack up a total of 342 yards in the opener, 239 of them coming through the passing game. However, Southern was only able to gain an average of 2.6 yards per carry when keeping the ball on the ground, creating a one-sided offense.
After losing five fumbles in last week’s loss, the Jags will need to put more emphasis on keeping the ball secure.
Quarterback Glendon McDaniel was able to connect on 11 of his 19 passing attempts, throwing for 135 yards and a touchdown.
Devon Benn was the team’s leading rusher with 11 carries for 33 yards. While Hunter Register only hauled in four receptions last week, he accumulated 82 receiving yards and was able to find the endzone twice.
On the defensive side of the ball, Southern gave up a total of 303 yards. They allowed the McNeese offense to run the ball for 154 yards on 52 attempts.
If they don’t do something to stop the run this Saturday, Patrick Taylor Jr. could end up having a field day when the Tiger’s offense is on the field.
The Memphis Tigers made some noise last week, taking down a SEC opponent in their home opener. The Tigers jumped on top with a 13-0 lead in the first half and were able to keep Ole Miss out of the endzone until the fourth quarter.
The Memphis defense was impressive, only giving up a total of 173 yards. They limited Ole Miss to throwing the ball for just 93 yards while holding the running game to an average of just 2.4 yards per carry.
One of the stats that impressed me the most was the time of possession battle. Memphis held onto the ball for 38:41while Ole Miss only had it for 21:19. I look for similar results in this week’s game.
Quarterback Brady White has able to connect on 23 of his 31 passing attempts for 172 yards and one interception.
Patrick Taylor had 27 carries, galloping for 128 yards and a touch down in the process. Damonte Coxie was the Tiger’s leading receiver with six receptions for 44 yards.
JJ Russell and Bryce Huff led the Memphis defense with five tackles each. Huff also had one of the defense’s three sacks.

Free Week 2 NCAA Football Pick
I know I know. Ole Miss isn’t exactly the cream of the crop in the SEC. That being said, I want to believe their offense is stronger with the ball than Southern University.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Southern Covers 37.5
Because of this, I look for the Memphis defense to come up big again this week. When you add on the strength of their ground attack on offense, their shouldn’t be any issue for the Tigers to come away with a big win in this one, though Southern should cover 37.
