The Memphis Tigers will play the SMU Mustangs in an AAC Game on Saturday afternoon at Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

The Memphis Tigers are 6-5 (3-4) this season after they defeated North Alabama by a score of 59-0 in their last game. Memphis out gained their opponent by a total of 493-124 and forced three turnovers in the win. The Memphis offense is averaging 35.3 points per game with 279.1 passing yards per game and 141.2 rushing yards per game. Seth Henigan has thrown for 3,000 yards, 18 touchdowns, and seven interceptions for the Tigers this season. Jevyon Ducker has rushed for 380 yards and five touchdowns, while Caden Prieskorn has caught 42 passes for 548 yards and six scores for Memphis. The Memphis defense is giving up 26.7 points per game and 367.2 yards per game.

The SMU Mustangs are 6-5 (4-3) this season after they lost to Tulane by a score of 59-24 in their last game. SMU out gained Tulane by a total of 470-451, but turned the ball over five times in the loss. The SMU offense is averaging 38.8 points per game with 326.2 passing yards per game and 158.7 rushing yards per game. Tanner Mordecai has thrown for 3,078 yards, 29 touchdowns, and nine interceptions for the Mustangs this season. Tyler Lavine (questionable) has rushed for 487 yards and seven scores, while Rashee Rice has caught 83 passes for 1,208 yards and nine touchdowns for SMU. The SMU defense is allowing 35 points per game and 446.6 yards per game.

Memphis is 16-7 ATS in their last 23 November games and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 road games. The over is 4-0 in Memphis’ last 4 road games. SMU is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 home games. The over is 6-2 in SMU’s last 8 home games. Memphis 7-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams come into the final game of the regular season with 6-5 overall records and are sitting in the middle of the AAC standings. SMU has really played poorly on defense this season and has allowed at least 59 points in two of their last three games. Both of these offenses can move the ball, but I think Memphis has the advantage here due to their defense being slightly better.
