American Athletic Conference News: Football Notes for Week 9

Sun, Oct 25, 2020

American Athletic Conference football release for Week 9 of the 2020 college football season.

 

  • Cincinnati won a showdown of top-25 teams, while Houston and Tulsa also scored key conference wins to remain unbeaten in American Athletic Conference play heading into Week 9 of the college football season.

 

  • Cincinnati demonstrated the balance befitting a top-10 team as the No. 9 Bearcats took a 42-13 victory on the road against No. 16 SMU late Saturday. Cincinnati’s defense did its part, limiting the Mustangs, who had averaged 42.6 points and 563.2 yards entering the game, to 290 yards and one touchdown. The offense was paced by an inspired performance from QB Desmond Ridder, who rushed for a career-high 179 yards and three touchdowns on only eight carries, including a backbreaking 91-yard score that effectively put the game away in the fourth quarter. He also completed 13 of 21 passes for 126 yards and a touchdown as Cincinnati improved to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in The American.

 

  • The win marked Cincinnati’s most lopsided victory against a top-25 opponent in program history and was the Bearcats’ second win against a top-25 team this season (Army).

 

  • Tulsa, which was playing its third consecutive road game to start the 2020 season, was impressive in a wire-to-wire 42-13 win at Tulsa Friday night. RB Deneric Prince and RB Corey Taylor II both had two rushing touchdowns as Prince ran for a career-high 109 yards on 15 carries. The defense was led by LB Zaven Collins, who had six tackles, a forced fumble and a 38-yard interception return for a touchdown as the Golden Hurricane limited the Bulls to a touchdown and two field goals.

 

  • Houston topped Navy 37-21 in a battle of teams that were unbeaten in conference play as Cougars QB Clayton Tune went 24-for-34 for 316 yards and three touchdowns. Tune became the first Houston player since Case Keenum in 2011 to throw for at least 300 yards in four consecutive games. WR Marquez Stevenson finished with 129 yards and two touchdowns on nine catches as the Cougars improved to 2-0 in The American.

 

  • UCF bounced back from its first two-game slide since the 2016 season with a return to form in a 51-34 victory against Tulane. The Knights, who entered the game as the national leader in total offense (636.3 ypg) improved on their season average by gaining 689 total  yards with 36 first downs. QB Dillon Gabriel went 26-of-40 for 422 yards and five touchdowns, giving him 1,023 yards and 10 TDs in his last two games.

 

  • Memphis trailed Temple 15-10 into the third quarter, but the Tigers exploded for 17 quick points to take the lead for good on their way to a 41-29 victory against Temple at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. QB Brady White thew for 313 yards and four touchdowns, while WR Calvin Austin III had six receptions for 184 yards and a TD as the Tigers won their 12th consecutive home game.

 

  • The Week 9 schedule includes another potential top-25 matchup of conference teams as Cincinnati hosts a Memphis squad that could move back into the national rankings Sunday. The Bearcats bring a 16-game winning streak at Nippert Stadium into the contest, but the Tigers took both head-to-head meetings last year.

Memphis Tigers Football News: QB Brady White NFF Campbell Trophy Semifinalist

 

Brady White

 

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced Thursday the semifinalists for the 2020 William V. Campbell Trophy® Presented by Mazda and redshirt senior quarterback Brady White was among the 199 selected. He is one of 85 FBS nominees.

In its 31st season of honoring college football’s most impressive student-athletes, the award recognizes an individual as the absolute best football scholar-athlete in the nation for his combined academic success, football performance and exemplary leadership.

Eligible student-athletes must be a senior or graduate student in their final year of playing eligibility. Candidates must maintain a 3.2 GPA, have outstanding football ability as a first team player or significant contributor and demonstrate strong leadership and citizenship.

White, a native of Santa Clarita, Calif. who is in his third season donning the Blue and Gray, carries a 3.58 cumulative grade-point average and is currently pursuing his doctorate in humanities. He is a two-time American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team member and was a 2019 CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team honoree.

Most recently, White was named the AAC Offensive Player of the Week for leading Memphis to a 37-24 season-opening win against Arkansas State. He currently sits 365 yards shy of matching former Tiger Riley Ferguson for third on the Memphis career passing yards list. He currently has 7,590 career passing yards and 63 touchdowns. His 63 touchdowns are third-most in program history.

In addition to his numerous accolades on the gridiron, White has made a significant impact on the Memphis community. During the 2019 season, White completed 35 hours of community service, which included visits to LeBonheur Children’s and St. Jude Children’s Hospitals. His work in the Memphis community also included work with the Jessie Reed Foundation, helping distribute Joy Jars to hospitalized children, and with Gardenview Elementary School as part of the Tiger Blue Holiday.

He also served his fellow Tiger student-athletes on a panel for freshman student-athletes as part of the department’s ACAD class. Although the pandemic has restricted the program’s access to the community, White has also read a book on camera that the local school systems used on their Facebook page.

The NFF will announce 12-to-14 finalists in November, and each of them will receive an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship as a member of the 2020 NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class Presented by Fidelity Investments.

Later this year, one member of the class will be declared as the winner of the 31st Campbell Trophy® Presented by Mazda, having his postgraduate scholarship increased to $25,000 and receiving his own 25-pound-bronze version of the iconic statue.

Memphis Tigers Football News: Get set for another Marquee matchup with #7 Cincinnati Bearcats today at Noon

A lot will be on the line Saturday when the Memphis Tigers visit the No. 7 Cincinnati Bearcats in a game with major American Athletic Conference Championship implications.
The 11 a.m. CT kickoff on ESPN will take place with only family members of players and coaches allowed in attendance at Nippert Stadium.

Memphis (3-1, 2-1 The American) came from behind to defeat Temple 41-29 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium last Saturday. The Tigers trailed 15-10 at halftime and turned the game around midway through the third quarter with two forced turnovers and two touchdowns in a span of seven plays.

Cincinnati (4-0, 2-0) shut down a high-powered SMU offense last week to hand the No. 22 Mustangs their first loss of the season, 42-13, in a surprisingly lopsided game. The Bearcats rushed for 313 yards in the road win.

“This is a nationally ranked team that we’re playing,” said Memphis head coach Ryan Silverfield. “They’re a top-10 team for a reason. If we can win this game, it’ll continue to put us where we want to be with our long-term goals, but we don’t talk about championships right now. We are focused on having a great week of practice. That’s not coach-speak.”

Familiar Foe
Memphis is facing Cincinnati for the third time in its past eight games. The Tigers defeated the Bearcats 34-24 in the 2019 regular-season finale last November and 29-24 a week later in the AAC Championship Game.

“This is probably a game (Cincinnati) had circled on the calendar,” Silverfield said. “It’s probably up in their weight room, this game circled, with the Memphis logo on there. We also understand there are a lot of chips on the table for us in this one. It’s a big-time game.”

In the series overall, Memphis holds a 23-13 advantage. The Tigers have won the past five meetings and the past two in Cincinnati.

Nearing History
Brady White earned his 23rd victory as the starting quarterback for the Tigers last Saturday, moving him into a tie with Lloyd Patterson (1975-78) for the most in Memphis history.

White, a three-year starter currently working on his doctorate in the classroom, is also just six passing touchdowns shy of setting the school career record and 178 yards short of moving into second in school history for career passing yards.

Battle of the Best
White enters Saturday averaging an AAC-best 4.25 touchdowns per game. He plays behind an offensive line that has allowed just 1.25 sacks per game and has paved the way for running back Rodrigues Clark’s conference-leading 105.25 rushing yards per game. Wide receiver Calvin Austin III is averaging 177.5 receiving yards the past two games, giving Memphis elite production across the board offensively.

On the other side of the ball, the Cincinnati defense is equally as impressive. The Bearcats lead the AAC in scoring defense (12.5 points per game) and total defense (302.5 yards per game). Last week, the unit held SMU 29.6 points below its per-game average entering the game.

Top 10 Wins
Memphis is searching for its third-ever win over a team ranked in the top 10 nationally. The Tigers’ last win against a top-10 team came in 1996 when they defeated No. 6 Tennessee, 21-17, at the Liberty Bowl. A 31-20 victory at Auburn in 1975 is the program’s only road victory over a top-10 team.

The Bearcats, ranked No. 7 in both the Associated Press and coaches’ polls, are 8-1 all-time when ranked in the top 10. Cincinnati spent most of the 2009 season in the top 10 when it started 12-0 before losing to No. 5 Florida in the Sugar Bowl.
