Memphis Tigers

What is becoming a surprising story of this college football season is the Memphis Tigers. The Tigers, who play in the American Athletic Conference are now 6-0 after beating Ole Miss 37-24. This is a program that went 5-31 the previous three years. They are led by quarterback Paxson Lynch, who is suddenly getting  a lot of attention from NFL teams as a top QB prospect at the next level. Lynch, who is 6 ft. 7 and 245 pounds,  had an outstanding day passing for 384 yards, completing 39 of 53 passes for three touchdowns in beating the 13th rank Ole Miss from the mighty SEC. This victory puts the nation on notice that Memphis is a team to keep an eye on as the season progresses.
