Memphis Tigers at UConn Huskies Prediction

Memphis' overall record is impressive and they do have a positive 8-5 AAC conference record, but are only 3-3 on the road. Their three wins include two wins over the bottom feeding South Florida and Tulane. UConn is just 7-5 in AAC games, but are 5-1 at home and have matched that number in their last six overall. Connecticut won by 14 last season as a 14-point home favorite over Memphis last season and I look for mor of the same tonight.
