UCLA Bruins at Memphis Tigers Overview

The Bruins enter in off a dominant performance in Pasadena when they hosted the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors on Saturday night. UCLA would cruise past the Alohas by a score of 56-23. Most of Hawaii’s scoring efforts came in junk-time after the Bruins had long secured the win. In the week previous to this, the Bruins overcame a 34-point deficit in route to a 45-44 victory over visiting Texas A&M. The comeback was classed as nothing less than historic. Memphis enters off a shaky win against UL-Monroe in their home opener, two weeks ago. As a 27.5-point choice, the Tigers would sneak by the Warhawks by a score 37-29. Most notably, Riley Ferguson would complete just 40% of his passes for less than 100 yards. Ferguson failed to find the end zone but managed to get picked off once in his performance. The Memphis defense also gave up an accommodating 425 yards of total offense to one of the most maligned units in all of college football.

UCLA Bruins at Memphis Tigers Week 3 Prediction

In the early going we have seen 88% like the Bruins against the spread in this situation. However, this price is accompanied by a pleasant tag as we have seen the Bruins offered spotting a point less in some markets. There are many question marks about UCLA but the biggest inquiry in this affair should be made into Memphis’ defense. Regardless of the mystery surrounding the Bruins’ credibility as a contender, it can be ascertained that their offense is one that can score at will when all cylinders are firing. Memphis is a team that lives and dies by its offensive operations. Nevertheless, UL Monroe provided a blueprint to curtail Riley Ferguson. The Bruins will certainly take advantage of this data. Despite this contest being in the Tigers’ backyard, they will be outclassed in this one. Any chance of a UCLA hangover from the Texas A&M comeback has long since been put to sleep. Rosen should have a field day against Memphis.
