Memphis over CONNECTICUT by 13
We realize it’s hard to back the mutts from East Hartford who have yet to outgain a foe this season and are riding a 0-8 SUATS streak against FBS opposition since mid-October of last year. Especially here against the high-potent Cats, who figure to score often and early against a toothless Huskies’ stop-unit that is surrendering 37 points and 547 yards per game through the first month of the season. The concern, however, is laying double-digits on the road with a timid Tigers’ defense that was shredded for 603 yards against UCF last Saturday and is allowing 36 PPG of their own. Not to mention a squad that arrives off their initial loss of the season with a revenger against Navy on deck. Still, the men from Memphis figure to get their ‘points’ across which has us overlooking a series history that finds the series host 2-0 SUATS all-time, and a coach (Randy Edsall) who is 5-1 ATS as a home dog of more than 13 points. Nonetheless, we’re not overlooking a Tigers’ defense that ranks 126th in the land and is asked to lay doubles on the road. See our dilemma? You’re on your own here.
