The Memphis Tigers improved to 4-0 as they outscored Cincinnati 53-46 in what amounted to a free for all from an offensive perspective.

The South Florida Bulls have had a reputation for scoring woes over the past few years and that has been a trend once again in 2015. That was a problem in a 35-17 defeat at Maryland as the defense failed to get enough stops as well. The Terrapins led the yardage battle 411-300 but turned the ball over three times. USF gave the ball away twice and were whistled for ten penalties which hurt. Quarterback Quinton Flowers completed 10-19 for 60 yards with a touchdown and interception with Steven Bench going 0-3 with a pick. Flowers gave the Bulls 85 rushing yards with a TD on 24 carries while Marlon Mack added 71 yards on 12 touches.
The over is 5-0 in Tigers last 5 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game and is 6-0 in Tigers last 6 games following a S.U. win while going 7-0 in Tigers last 7 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Bulls last 5 Friday games and is 4-0 in Bulls last 4 games following a bye week while the Bulls are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. Under is 5-0 in Bulls last 5 Friday games. The under is 4-0 in Bulls last 4 games following a bye week and the Bulls are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. Not my favorite game because the Tigers defense stinks but I don’t know if South Florida will take advantage…
