Tulane Green Wave vs. Memphis Tigers

Where: Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Memphis, TN

When: Saturday, October 19, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Memphis Tigers will be trying to bounce back from their first loss of the season when they take on the Tulane Green Wave on Saturday night.

Green Wave Going For Fifth Consecutive Win

The Green Wave have managed to string together four consecutive wins since their loss to 10th-ranked Auburn in their second game of the season and will try to keep the momentum going with a win on Saturday, which will give them their fifth win in a row and second consecutive win over the Tigers, while snapping their six-game losing streak in Memphis.

Tulane has done well on the offensive end this season, averaging 39.2 points per game. They will have a hard time hitting their season average against the Tigers, who are holding opponents to 21 points per game, but they should be able to move the ball on the ground because the Tigers have struggled against the run and are giving up 185 rushing yards per game.

Defensively, the Green Wave are giving up 19.2 points per game, but they will face a tough test against the Tigers, who are averaging 37.8 points per game.

In their last game, the Green Wave dominated UConn 49-7 and finished the game with 634 total yards. Justin McMillan completed 18 of 24 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns, while Corey Dauphine finished with 87 rushing yards on five carries to lead the Green Wave, who finished with 311 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Tigers Going For 12th Win In 13 Games Against The Green Wave

The Tigers suffered their first loss of the season against the Temple Owls in their last game and will be trying to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Green Wave, who defeated them in Louisiana last season. Despite last year’s loss, they will go into this game with a lot of confidence because they have won 11 of their last 12 meetings against the Green Wave.

The Tigers have played well on the offensive end, averaging 37.8 points per game. They are averaging 266 passing yards and 200 rushing yards per game, which are ranked 44th and 37th in the country respectively. They might have trouble running against the Green Wave, who are holding opponents to 147 rushing yards per game, but they will be able to throw against them because their pass defense isn’t as good.

In their last game, the Tigers were held to 28 points by the Owls. Brady White completed 28 of 43 passes for 363 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, while Kenneth Gainwell rushed for 106 yards and one touchdown for the Tigers, who were held to 129 rushing yards.

The Tigers were careless with the ball in that game and turned it over four times. They will need to do a better job of protecting the ball if they want to get past the Green Wave.

This is going to be an exciting game between two rivals who are contenders for the AAC title. The teams are evenly matched offensively with the Tigers averaging 37.8 points per game and the Green Wave averaging 39.2 points per game. Tulane has the fourth-best ground game in the country, averaging 288 yards per game and should be able to move the ball on the ground against the Tigers, who are giving up 185 rushing yards per game. Like the Green Wave, the Tigers are also one of the best rushing teams in the country, averaging 200.2 yards per game. Even if the Green Wave, who are holding opponents to 147 rushing yards per game, stifle Memphisโ€™ ground attack, they can still hurt the Green Wave through the air because they have the 44th best passing attack in the country. Ultimately, the Tigers have the edge because they have won 11 of the last 12 meetings between the two teams and the last six meetings in Memphis.

Prediction: Memphis Tigers -4.5

Full-Game Total Pick

Rating:

The Tigers are averaging 37.8 points per game, but they will fall below their season average because the Green Wave is a very good defensive team and is holding opponents to 19.2 points per game. The Green Wave are averaging 39.2 points per game and will also score below their season average against a Memphis defense that is holding opponents to 21 points per game. Even though the two teams will fall below their season averages, they will go over the total in this game because they have scored at least 30 points in all but one game this season and have scored over 64 total points in each of their last two meetings.

Prediction: Over 59.5
