  1. Football lost its final non-conference game of the season 44-34 to the University of Memphis on Saturday. “I still believe we can make a great run in conference [play],” head coach Seth Littrell said. “I think we made a big step today — we’ve got to clean some things up.” The North Texas (2-3, 1-0 Conference USA) defense began the game by forcing a turnover on downs in Memphis (3-1, 1-0 American Athletic Conference) territory, which led to a 26-yard field goal by senior kicker Ethan Mooney. After both defenses forced punts, the Tigers put together a scoring drive. Memphis quarterback Seth Henigan connected with redshirt junior tight end Caden Prieskorn for an eight-yard touchdown, making the score 6-3 after a missed extra point. The Mean Green responded with a 20-yard touchdown pass to junior receiver Jyaire Shorter to take a 10-6 lead. Shorter finished with two catches in the game for 38 yards. Henigan threw another touchdown pass with 11:50 left in the second quarter to redshirt junior receiver Javon Ivory. Henigan finished with 141 yards and a pick to go, after throwing for 360 yards and 415 yards the previous two weeks. Junior quarterback Austin Aune led North Texas down the field with 56 seconds left in the second quarter. Senior kicker Ethan Mooney kicked a 36-yard field goal to put the team within seven points at the half. Aune tallied 371 yards and three touchdowns through the air in the contest. read more: https://www.ntdaily.com/football-ends-non-conference-play-with-a-loss/#share
  2. This could have been awkward. For Seth Henigan. For Ryan Silverfield. For the entire Memphis football program. Grant Gunnell could have come to Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium this week as the North Texas starting quarterback, just a few months after transferring from Memphis, an exit indirectly shepherded by Silverfield, who gave Henigan the first team snaps in spring practice over Gunnell. It could have been a referendum on Silverfield’s choice ‒ and Silverfield – if Gunnell returned to Memphis with North Texas and out-played Henigan. But it’s none of that, and not simply because Gunnell isn’t expected to be the North Texas starting quarterback Saturday. Henigan is playing too well to play the what-if game.

  3. Upcoming AAC Realignment In one of the biggest conference “trades” in NCAA history, three current American Athletic Conference teams – Cincinnati, Houston, and UCF – will be leaving for the Big 12 before the 2023 academic year. Six C-USA teams replacing them (FAU, UAB, Charlotte, Rice, North Texas, and UTSA) would do so at the same time, to prevent the AAC from dropping to just eight teams. The buyout for the AAC schools is going to be $18 million each. That’s the standard $10 million buyout fee, plus another $8 million each to leave early. The buyout will be paid over 14 years. Meanwhile, lawyers with billable hours are still working out further details on the new incoming schools. With it, the American will compete as a 14-team league in football after the transition next summer. MEMPHIS – ATTRITION MISSION – 7.5 W – *7 / 6 The Tigers’ 7-year bowl streak came to an end last season. The culprit was the Tigers’ shoddy 5-7 mark ‘In The Stats’ (ITS) as they now stand 10-13 ITS in all games under Ryan Silverfield, including 2-7 away. This pales in comparison to the 34-20 ITS mark in the Mike Norvell years from 2016-2019. Thus, you can see where erosion is occurring. Despite seniors making 145 of the 260 overall team starts last season, they will line up with a good amount of returning experience this season. With four of its first five games this campaign against foes with losing records in 2021, a fast start is imperative if Memphis is to revisit the alleys this season. PLAY AGAINST: at Mississippi State (9/3) – *KEY STAT YOU WILL LIKE: The Tigers are 0-9 ATS away under head coach Ryan Silverfield. SMU – 50 LASHES – 7 W – *6 / 7 New head coach Rhett Lashlee led what should have been a mess of a Miami offense to a top-50 rank in points-per-drive last season while developing young star Tyler Van Dyke in the process. His reward was landing the top spot with an SMU squad that has gone 25-10 the past three seasons under Sonny Dykes, who now takes over the reins at TCU – an hour down I-30 in Dallas. Lashlee was a quarterback at Arkansas from 2002-05 where the Hogs won 23 games and played in two bowl games. He’s worked under Gus Malzahn for a good portion of his college coaching career and looks to be a good fit for the Ponies. PLAY ON: at Tulsa (10/29) STAT YOU WILL LIKE: The Mustangs are 10-2 ATS at home versus greater than .600 opponents the past five seasons. read more: https://www.wagertalk.com/news/college-football/2022-aac-football-betting-preview-marc-lawrences-playbook/
