Obviously, UCF has the edge here. Memphis certainly isn’t the air-it-out and spread style team that the Tigers are. UCF, behind the cannon of starting quarterback Justin Herbert, has the second most passing yards in the conference at a shade over 300.
NCAA College Football 2018 Game:
UCF once again has the numbers advantage in this phase of the game. Behind a constantly rotating committee of running backs, UCF can give defenses a myriad of looks on the ground game. Memphis, on the other hand, is another good running team. I know they average less yards than UCF, but they can’t be taken for granted — quarterback Chase Garbers included. You have to remember, this team has played overall stiffer competition than the Tigers.
It’s no secret that UCF has the more potent offense of the two. With certain future Sunday regular Justin Herbert taking snaps, and CJ Verdell and Tony Brooks-James behind him, and Dillon Mitchell out wide, this UCF offense has a plethora of weapons — enough to give any team fits on defense. If UCF is firing on all cylinders, the Cal offense will have a tough time keeping up.
Here’s where the number begin to favor the Tigers. Their secondary has been sturdy and reliable thus far, but hasn’t faced a passer as elite as Herbert. UCF’s secondary, on the other hand, has been a rather disappointing aspect of the squad. They cannot let Garbers get comfortable today.
