Mem­phis win over Hous­ton would let fans dream big

The Commercial Appeal - - Sports -

Be­hold, the pos­si­bil­i­ties. If Mem­phis de­feats Hous­ton on Thurs­day night, it will be the pro­hib­i­tive fa­vorite to win the Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence’s West di­vi­sion.

If Mem­phis wins the AAC West, it will play in the AAC Cham­pi­onship game.

If Mem­phis wins the AAC Cham­pi­onship game, it will be ranked ahead of South Florida and Cen­tral Florida by the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off se­lec­tion com­mit­tee and may well be ranked ahead of ev­ery other school out­side the Power 5.

If Mem­phis is ranked ahead of ev­ery other school out­side the Power 5, it will be se­lected to play in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl on Jan. 1.

If Mem­phis wins that game, it will cer­tainly end the sea­son ranked in the top 10 in the country, and pos­si­bly the top five.

“It’s a won­der­ful time to be a Mem­phis Tiger,” said coach Mike Norvell, and when the man is right, he’s right.
