Riley Ferguson | Quarterback
Despite the Tigers blowing out lesser opponents, Riley Ferguson has not put up gaudy stats. Through three games, Ferguson has thrown for 843 yards, 11 TDs, and 2 INTs.
Ferguson has a favorite wide receiver in Anthony Miller. Miller leads the team with 17 receptions for 273 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Memphis relies heavily on Ferguson to produce on offense, but they also spread the wealth running the ball as well. The team has run for 555 yards in three games, with the majority of those yards being split between Patrick Taylor Jr. and Doroland Dorceus.
If the Rebels defensive line can get some pressure on Ferguson, they can stop him. He isn’t the dual-threat quarterback that has lit up the Rebel defense all season, but more akin to Jacob Eason, a pro-style quarterback.
Simply put, Ferguson is not Paxton Lynch, who torched the Rebel defense last season.
The young defensive backfield helped the Rebels out against the Georgia Bulldogs, can they do the same against Memphis?
