Memphis’ Disappointing Loss

The Memphis Tigers have had a week to contemplate last Saturday’s four-overtime loss to the East Carolina Pirates. It was one of the better games in College football last weekend. Memphis had a 17-0 lead, but couldn’t last, eventually falling, 47-45.

Soph quarterback Seth Henigan was solid in defeat, however, with 407 yards and two touchdowns. He was intercepted twice and sacked four times. He has 1,924 passing yards this season.

Junior wide receiver Joseph Scates broke out against the Pirates, with five catches (112 yards) and a touchdown. Those five receptions matched his entire season’s total entering the game. Tight end Caden Prieskorn is the Tigers’ biggest threat in the passing game (27 catches, 323 yards, six touchdowns). He had six grabs (104 yards) against ECU.

Tulane’s Unfamiliar Position

The Tulane Green Wave have been playing very well, and they’re being recognized as such. It’s their first appearance in the national polls (No. 25) since 1998, but don’t expect coach Willie Fritz to be satisfied. Tulamd still has some work to do.

“We didn’t play clean the whole ballgame,” Fritz said after Saturday’s 45-31 win at South Florida. “When you play 70-something snaps, you’ve got to be really disciplined with all 11 guys. We had a couple where we didn’t get lined up properly or have our eyes on the right guy, but we made some good plays and we ran the ball and threw the ball well. It hasn’t been the case for really a whole bunch of the season where we’ve done both of them well.”

Quarterback Michael Pratt definitely did a lot of good things in the win, with 329 yards, and two touchdowns, while also rushing for a pair of scores. The junior has 1,560 passing yards (11 touchdowns), 196 rush yards (four touchdowns) as well.

Running back Tyjae Spears leads Tulane with 463 yards (eight touchdowns). The junior had 151 yards and a pair of scores against South Florida, including a 75-yard scamper.
