I'm not saying its going to happen but this has the looks of a trap game for Memphi. They are a 6 point underdog at #23 Wichita State tonight (probably the conference game of the year until they play again the last week of the season), then play us less than 48 hours later, also on the road, before returning home to play a recently impressive Cincinnati team at home a week from today.

The Bulls have shown the ability to play up to their competition so it will be interesting to see the line come Saturday. USF to cover the first half against some tired legs may be a good play.

Wait, if they play tonight and play us Sunday isn't it more than 48 hours?
