Memphis Tigers FieldThe Cincinnati Bearcats square off against the Memphis Tigers in an American Athletic Conference tilt at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee. Cincinnati, winners of two straight, are currently in a tie for 4th place in the AAC. Memphis is sitting at the bottom of the division, and has yet to pick up a conference win this year.

Cincinnati has had some impressive wins, despite losing their starting quarterback, Munchie Legaux for the season. Brendon Kay has filled in nicely, passing for 1386 yards this season. In his past two wins, he’s been quite efficient, completing 78% of his passes for 560 yards. Those solid numbers, however, have been against some of the weaker defenses in the conference in UConn and Temple. Both of Cincinnati’s losses have come on the road this year, against 2-5 South Florida and 3-4 Illinois. Their only road win was unimpressive, beating a winless Miami OH team (0-8).

Memphis has had some tough breaks this year. At 1-5, they are a lot better than their record would indicate. They’ve played Central Florida tough, only losing by 7, and only losing by 2 at Middle Tennessee State. They actually out-gained both of these teams when they played them. Memphis has been competitive in a lot of the games.  But, there’s just one problem that keeps haunting this team; turnovers. They just can’t seem to take care of the ball. Their offense is definitely not electrifying, but it’s their defense that keeps them in ball games. Their QB, Paxton Lynch is completing 60% of his passes for 1193 yards. He’s thrown 3 TD’s and 5 interceptions on the year.

Both the Bearcats and the Tigers have good defensive units. Cincinnati ranks 7th in the country, allowing 286 yards a game, while Memphis is 13th in the country, allowing 331 yards a game. You have to be more impressed with Memphis though, as their defense has somewhat limited some of the more powerful offenses in the conference, with the likes of SMU, Middle Tennessee St., and nationally ranked Central Florida.

The Memphis offensive attack has been somewhat inept this year. They can run the ball somewhat effectively though, and I expect them to do just that. Ball control will be the only way they can keep in this game. Cincinnati will have a balanced attack, as they’ve shown they can run and pass the ball effectively. However, Memphis will be one of the best defensive units they’ve faced this year. Playing on a Wednesday night is rare, and it has to make you wonder how the road team will respond. Given the fact that Cincinnati has had its struggles on the road this season, Memphis has a very good chance of coming out victorious on Wednesday night, or at least keep it very close.
