Thank you everyone for visiting https://noozbuffet.com for the aftermath of the SMU, Memphis Game. Week 10 of the college football season is now over, and this is our Feature Game follow up.
Last night was a night of firsts. I don’t think there was ever a week when we didn’t at least pick one winner, weather it be straight up or versus the points. We picked SMU to win the game and cover the spread, and we lost both.
I have two questions? What happened to defense, and who the heck is Antonio Gibson? Last night’s game between the Mustangs and the Tigers was hard hitting and exciting. Both teams were fired up under the lights, and both teams were emotionally charged. The atmosphere was incredible.
Memphis’s senior Antonio Gibson is a big wide receiver, he’s 6’2, 225 pounds, and during this game we saw him run over people, run around people, and single handedly, take this game over. He had 6 catches for 130 yards and a touchdown. In addition, he returned 3 kickoffs for 159 yards and a touchdown. SMU didn’t want to kickoff anymore. They were afraid of what Gibson might do.
I was really impressed by several guys however, and teammate, senior WR Damonte Coxie, was magnificent, not Magnifico, but magnificent. Coxie caught 7 balls for 143 yards, and he scored 2 touchdowns last night to help Memphis win this game.
Speaking of senior TE Joey Magnifico, had 2 catches for 30 yards, but he did return a kickoff for 40 yards, which gave the Tigers excellent field position.
SMU scored the game’s first touchdown (Shane Buechele passed to Kylen Granson for a 16 yd. touchdown), and their opening drive was perfect, but Memphis answered right back. That’s how the game went until Memphis took the lead. SMU showed incredible heart last night, and they never gave up, but without their defense controlling the game, it turned into a shootout. SMU RB Xavier Jones was held to 22 yards on 11 carries.
It was a 23-17 ball game at halftime, Memphis was winning. Memphis received the opening kickoff to start the second half and Gibson returned it for a 97 yard touchdown. The Tigers did two very important things, they answered back after SMU scored the first touchdown, and they took the momentum to start the second half. They were home and they made the most of this opportunity.
This was SMU’s first loss of the season, and both teams are now 8-1 overall. The Tigers were ranked 24th overall before this game so it will be interesting to see where they are after beating (15)SMU.
