Perhaps I jumped the gun a bit on Memphis.

Just minutes after USF took a 14-0 lead in the St. Pete Bowl, the Tigers put together a six play drive of their own to cut the lead to 14-7. However, it was with USF’s help.

Personal foul penalties – which have hindered USF all season – by Tyrone McKenzie and Keith McCaskill put Memphis well into Bulls territory. Mempis running back Curtis Steele then took the Tigers inside the USF five yard line, where quarterback Arkelon Hall sneaked across the goal line.
