The Memphis Tigers will be looking to have another 1st place finish in the American West.  Memphis finished the 2019 season with an overall record of (12-2), while going (7-1) in AAC play.  The offense averaged 40.4 points per contest, which ranked 8th at the FBS level. The defense was towards the middle of the pack, allowing 26.4 per game, which ranked 58th.  The program is under the direction of Mike Norvell.

The offense was guided by quarterback Brady White.  White passed for 4,014 yards, while throwing 33 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. White will be back for the 2020 season as a senior.  Running back Kenneth Gainwell had an incredible season as a red shirt freshman. Gainwell rushed for 1,459 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 6.3 yards per rush.  The star wideout Damonte Coxie is back for another season for the university. Coxie had an incredible season a year ago, hauling in 76 receptions for 1,276 yards and 9 touchdowns.  

As a team the defense totaled 36 sacks and 11 interceptions.  The defense was led in tackles by Austin Hall. Hall recorded 75 tackles and 2.5 sacks as a senior.  The leader in sacks was defensive end Bryce Huff. Huff collected 6.5 sacks as a senior. Defensive lineman Joseph Dorceus registered 5 sacks during the 2019 campaign, he returns for a senior season. Defensive back Quindell Johnson had 58 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 4 pass break ups as a freshman.

Let us take a look at the Memphis schedule for the 2020 season.  

Sept. 5 Arkansas State

Sept. 12 at Purdue

Sept. 19 Houston

Sept. 26 at UTSA

Oct. 1 at SMU

Oct. 16 UCF

Oct. 24 Temple

Oct. 31 at Cincinnati

Nov. 7 USF

Nov. 14 at Navy

Nov. 21 UT Martin

Nov. 28 at Tulane

The Tigers open the season with 2 non-conference matchups.  Memphis plays host to Arkansas State and then travel to Big Ten foe Purdue.  The rest of the non-conference schedule is a road game at UTSA and a home meeting with UT Martin. With the play makers that are coming back on the offensive side of the ball, I like the chances for Memphis to be 4-0 in non-conference play. 

The projected win total is set at 9 wins, therefore Memphis would need 5 wins in conference play.  Memphis will need some different players to step up on defense this season, after seeing some of their better players on defense graduate.  However, with this offense, I still don’t see Memphis having more than 3 conference losses. I’m going to take the over here, as Memphis will need to just win at least one game out of their 3 toughest road games, which include: SMU, Cincinnati, and Navy.
