The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks and the Memphis Tigers will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Liberty Bowl.

ABOUT ULM (2016: 4-8): The Warhawks return their top two rushers from last season in junior Ben Luckett and senior Thomas Koufie, who together ran for 880 yards and 14 touchdowns a season ago. Sophomores Duke Carter IV and Austin Vaughn will also be part of backfield that will run behind senior left guard Frank Sutton, Jr., one of three returning starters on the offensive line and the only member of the team to earn preseason All-Sun Belt honors. David Griffith and Chase Day, the team leaders in tackles and tackles for loss, return for a defensive unit that surrendered 39.1 points per game last season. 

ABOUT MEMPHIS (2016: 8-5): If the offense had a weakness last season it was on the line, which was slow to adjust to the new scheme implemented by position coach Ryan Silverfield. That shouldn’t be a problem this season as the unit returns four starters in center Drew Kyser, guards Dustin Woodard and Gabe Kuhn, and tackle Trevon Tate while adding competition in the form of four-star recruit Obinna Eze and transfers Roger Joseph, Harneet Gill and Tauvaga Ho Ching II. In addition to Miller, who needs 71 receptions to become the school’s all-time leader, the Tigers also return senior receiver Phil Mayhue, who at 6-3 gives Ferguson a bigger target than the 5-11 Miller.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Tigers listed as 25-point favorites versus the Warhawks, while the game’s total is sitting at 63 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42.

Riley Ferguson and Anthony Miller will look to take the Memphis offense to the next level as they begin their senior season Thursday in a non-conference game against visiting Louisiana-Monroe. The quarterback-wide receiver tandem spearheaded the top passing attack in the American Athletic Conference a season ago, but now with a more experienced offensive line, the duo could take the Tigers’ show national.

Ferguson threw a school record 32 touchdown passes — 13 to Miller — to surpass the mark set by Paxton Lynch, who went on to become a first round draft pick of the Denver Broncos. Miller followed suit by setting school records with 95 receptions and 1,434 receiving yards, the latter breaking the mark set by Isaac Bruce, who is one of 14 players with 1,000 career receptions in the NFL. The Warhawks have yet to settle on a starting quarterback as Caleb Evans and Garrett Smith have each seen time with the first team in practice after splitting the duties under center last season. Neither was particularly effective last season in Matt Viator’s first season as coach as the duo combined for 2,071 yards with 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Memphis lost its last outing, a 51-31 result against Hilltoppers on December 20. Memphis failed to cover in that game as a +6.5-point underdog, while the 82 combined points took the game OVER the total.
