  • Corey Dauphine is averaging 11.0 yards per carry
  • Dauphine has never gotten 10 touches in a game under Hall
  • Dauphine, a 4-star recruit, carried the ball only twice for Texas Tech in 2016
  • Dauphine has never caught a pass
  • Tulane hasn't won at Memphis in over 20 years
  • Memphis is weak against the run. They rank 10th in the AAC (181.5 yards a game) and ninth on a per-carry basis (4.14

  • Tulane has not had back-to-back road wins

Wait guys something weird happened. The officials let Tulane get off the field on 4th down. They must have thought they made it up to Memphis enough.

Memphis starts slow notoriously. This them going down to temple last week. The Officials did their part. Lost all confidence, got bullied, injuries everything.

:lol: Can we not block anywhere on the field ? Are we now just dominated everywhere ? Apparently Memphis has better athletes than Houston (they don’t) . . . And Auburn ?! :lol:
