The Memphis Tigers have a chance to win double-digit games for the second time in three years. The Memphis Tigers have won four of their last five road games. Brady White is completing 67.4 percent of his passes for 2,852 yards, 28 touchdowns and five interceptions. White has two or more touchdown passes in his last nine games. Damonte Coxie and Antonio Gibson have combined for 1,349 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns while Kenneth Gainwell has 37 receptions.

Defensively, Memphis is allowing 25.9 points and 380.9 yards per game. Austin Hall leads the Memphis Tigers with 55 tackles, Bryce Huff has 3.5 sacks and Quindell Johnson has two interceptions.
The South Florida Bulls look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The South Florida Bulls have lost four of their last six home games. Jordan McCloud is completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 1,268 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. Blake Barnett and McCloud have combined for 16 touchdown passes and eight interceptions. Mitchell Wilcox and Randall St. Felix combined for 590 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Bryce Miller has 20 receptions. The South Florida Bulls ground game is averaging 167.5 yards per contest, and Jordan Cronkrite leads the way with 686 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, South Florida is allowing 26.4 points and 367.8 yards per game. Patrick Macon leads the South Florida Bulls with 67 tackles, Antonio Grier has four sacks and KJ Sails has two interceptions.
The Tigers are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 conference games, 11-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Bulls are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games, 6-13 ATS in their last 19 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on grass. The Tigers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in South Florida and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 3-1-1 in Bulls last 5 games overall. The over is 7-0 in Tigers last 7 games overall.
The Memphis Tigers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as a double-digit favorite. The South Florida Bulls are 6-6 ATS in their last 12 games as a double-digit underdog. The Memphis Tigers continue to pile up the wins and have topped 40 points in each of their last four games, but two of their last three contests have been decided by one score. The South Florida Bulls need to win their final two games in order to clinch a bowl game, and while they're losing, three of their last five losses have been decided by 10 or less points. Memphis should have no trouble scoring points in this game, but there's still a lot to play for with South Florida, and it's senior day with 16 seniors on this roster. Give me the points.
