Memphis redshirt junior WR Anthony Miller had 169 yards and two touchdowns on 15 receptions in Friday's 48-44 win over Houston.

Miller was fairly quiet in the first half, but boy did he turn up the heat at the end of this back-and-forth game. With 3:49 remaining, QB Riley Ferguson flung a 35-yard touchdown pass to Miller to put the Tigers up 41-37. The Cougars responded with a score of their own, so Ferguson marched the Tigers back down the field, hooking up with Miller on a 10-yard touchdown with 19 seconds to put the Tigers ahead for good. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Miller has an eye-opening 84-1,283-11 receiving line through 12 games.

Memphis junior WR Phil Mayhue caught six balls for 142 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 48-44 victory over the Houston Cougars.

Much of Mayhue's damage occured early, most notably his 67-yard touchdown on the second play to give Memphis the 7-0 lead. His second scoring catch, a two-yarder later that quarter, staked Memphis to a 21-10 advantage. The Tigers finish the regular season 8-4 and are heading towards their third straight bowl appearance in head coach Mike Norvell's first season.

Memphis redshirt junior QB Riley Ferguson completed completed 30-of-45 passes for 409 yards and four touchdowns in Friday's 48-44 upset win over Houston.

What a game. Ferguson was no sure thing to play in it coming into the weekend, having suffered an undisclosed injury after two possessions in last Friday's win over Cincinnati. But play in it he did, shining throughout the afternoon, most brightly when it really mattered. Trailing by a field goal with 19 seconds left, Ferguson connected for a touchdown with Anthony Miller on a 10-yard slant to give the Tigers the 48-44 victory.

Memphis redshirt junior QB Riley Ferguson (undisclosed) participated in practice on Monday.

Ferguson exited stage left after two possessions in Friday's win over Cincinnati. There isn't word as to the exact nature of the injury, but HC Mike Norvell did at least let on that the 6-foot-3, 189-pound redshirt junior was "hit in the midsection of the body" during that Friday dance with the Bearcats. When he was asked whether Ferguson is dealing with a concussion, Norvell responded cryptically that he has a "couple different issues." Regardless of just what Ferguson might be recovering from on the injury front, Jason Stewart would draw the start against Houston on Black Friday should Ferguson's "different issues" not have healed up well enough for game action by kickoff. Expect clarification as to Ferguson's playing status as the practice week progresses.
Nov 22 - 5:54 PM

Memphis redshirt junior RB Doroland Dorceus rushed for 66 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries in Friday's 34-7 win over Cincinnati.

All Memphis in this one. They jumped out to a 13-0 advantage after one quarter, with Dorceus scoring on a short touchdown run in between a pair of Tiger field goals. Dorceus would score his second touchdown -- from eight yards out -- with 1:28 remaining in the first half. That gave his squad a 27-0 lead hitting the locker room for the intermission. The 5-foot-10, 215-pound redshirt junior averaged 5.1 YPC with a long run of 16 yards. Through 11 games, he has now rushed for 704 yards and eight touchdowns.
Nov 18 - 11:26 PM

Memphis redshirt junior QB Riley Ferguson was lifted from Friday's game against Cincinnati due to an apparent injury.

All was going well for Ferguson and the Tigers to start -- they jumped to an early 10-0 lead -- but the redshirt junior gunslinger met with trainers following the second offensive series of the game and has not returned since. He was replaced by Jason Stewart. While Ferguson has not been officially ruled out for the remainder of the contest, Memphis currently holds a 20-0 lead early in the second quarter. Should that balloon much more, there would be no real need to push the ailing quarterback back into action.
Nov 18 - 8:57 PM

Memphis redshirt freshman CB Kam Prewitt and sophomore WR Jae'Lon Oglesby have been suspended indefinitely pending a police investigation into an incident involving gunshots.

Per the police report, Oglesby claimed to have had an altercation with Prewitt on Tuesday. Later that day, he told the authorities, he heard gunfire outside his off-campus apartment. His car was found pocked by bullet holes and five shell casings were reportedly found on the grass outside Oglesby's off-campus apartment. In a brief statement announcing the suspensions, HC Mike Norvell said, "I will make no further comments on this matter while it remains under investigation."
Oct 27 - 12:56 PM

Memphis redshirt junior QB Riley Ferguson completed completed 25-of-40 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-28 loss to Navy.

This was one of Ferguson's best games of the season, but the offense was done in by its inability to run on Navy's front. The Tigers now need help to reach the AAC title game. They host Tulsa next Saturday at the Liberty Bowl.
Oct 22 - 7:28 PM

Memphis redshirt junior RB Doroland Dorceus rushed for 81 yards on seven carries in Friday's 24-14 win over Tulane.

Dorceus ripped off a long run of 61 yards to account for the bulk of his ground work. The 5-foot-10, 215-pounder also caught one pass for 18 yards. After a slow start to the campaign -- 62 yards rushing through the first two games -- Dorceus has come on of late. Including Friday's contest, he has tallied at least 70 yards rushing in four consecutive games. Alas, Friday's win marked the first time this season he has failed to score a touchdown.
Oct 14 - 11:34 PM

Memphis redshirt junior WR Anthony Miller is not practicing on Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury.

No word as to the circumstance or severity of Miller's injury. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound redshirt junior has racked up a 28-406-2 receiving line through five games. The 4-1 Tigers have a Friday date scheduled with Tulane. We should know Miller's playing status within the next day or so.
Oct 11 - 3:54 PM

Memphis junior WR Phil Mayhue caught six balls for 84 yards in Thursday's 34-27 win over Temple.

Incredibly, Memphis dropped 34 points on Temple's solid defense despite not scoring a single passing touchdown. The Tigers returned an interception for a score and also had a kick return touchdown. As for the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Mayhue, his 84 yards were a season-high. He came in with 14 receptions for 196 yards and two scores.
Oct 6 - 11:43 PM

Memphis redshirt junior QB Riley Ferguson completed 20-for-27 passes for 359 yards and six touchdowns in Saturday's win over Bowling Green.

Ferguson added a rushing score. Ferguson has picked up where Paxton Lynch left off over the first three games, albeit against a weak slate. He has 843 passing yards and an 11/2 TD/INT rate. The degree of difficulty is about to get tougher with revenge-seeking Ole Miss on deck.
Sep 25 - 11:42 AM

Memphis senior RB Sam Craft (hamstring) is probable for Saturday's game against Bowling Green.

Craft was a full-participant in practice on Wednesday and looks ready to roll for Saturday. The 6-foot, 210-pounder has yet to play this season due to his bum hamstring. He holds little fantasy upside at this juncture.
Sep 23 - 3:20 PM

Memphis redshirt junior QB Riley Ferguson completed 26-of-40 passes for 295 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's win over Southeast Missouri State.

No Paxton Lynch, no Justin Fuente, no problem for Memphis. Ferguson will need to cut down on the interceptions moving forward, but he plays in a fantasy-friendly offensive scheme and should continue to post nice numbers moving forward. The Tigers are off next weekend and will take on Kansas after the bye.
