A short week will only add to the drama when Memphis visits Houston on Thursday night for a key American Athletic Conference West Division game. The past three meetings have been decided by four points or fewer.

“We know we’re going to have a quick turnaround,” Memphis coach Mike Norvell told the media Monday. “We’ve got an abbreviated week (but) our kids are excited about this game because they know what comes with this game.” The Tigers can gain the upper hand in the division and become bowl eligible for the fourth straight season — a program first — with a win. Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson has 10 touchdowns and no interceptions in his past two games while the Tigers have scored 100 points during that span. The Cougars have won 11 straight conference home games, and six of the past seven against Memphis.

Houston was a 45-17 loser in its last match on the road against Golden Hurricane. They failed to cover the -14-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 62 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
