Through 3 Quarters

The Memphis Tigers were the heavy favorites here for a reason. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Nicholls Colonels as Memphis lead 35-14.

Last Season Records: Memphis 8-3; Nicholls 4-3

What to Know

The Memphis Tigers will play against a Division II opponent, the Nicholls Colonels, in an early-season tune-up Saturday at 7 p.m. ET at Liberty Bowl Memorial. After an 8-3 record last year and a win in the Montgomery Bowl, the Tigers are coming in with an eye to spark another quality season.

Memphis is the favorite in this one, with an expected 23.5-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
