In NCAA Football Cotton Bowl, we will see Memphis at Penn State.
The Memphis Tigers are 12-1 this season and they were a top 10 team before they lost to Temple, 30-28. Since then, they have been on a 7-game winning streak, including 2 victories over Cincinnati and 1 over SMU. QB Brady White is having a very good season. He is completing 64% of his throws for 3560 passing yards, 33 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. RB Kenneth Gainwell has rushed for 1425 yards and 12 touchdowns so far this year.
The Penn State Nittany Lions would have certainly been in the playoff picture if they beat Minnesota and Ohio State a few weeks ago. Early in the season, the Nittany Lions looked unbeatable and they secured some important victories over Iowa and Michigan which even got them to 6th place in the rankings. QB Sean Clifford is completing 59.5% of his passes for 2521 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions while RB Journey Brown is adding 688 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.
Penn State certainly had a tougher schedule and they are more tested than their opponents. White is a good quarterback but he has not faced such tough defensive front 7. Memphis’ head coach Mike Norvell is moving to Florida State and he won’t coach in this game, so I believe that everything sides with Penn State to win by a large margin.
