UCF vs Memphis Week 10 Game Info

2022 NCAA College Football Game
No. 25 UCF Knights (6-2, 3-1 AAC) vs. Memphis Tigers (4-4, 2-3 AAC)
Date: Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022
Time: 3:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium — Memphis, TN
Coverage: ESPN2

Week 10 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an AAC showdown between the No. 25 UCF Knights and Memphis Tigers. UCF has been as hot as they come lately, winning five of its last six outings. Time will tell if the Knights can build off last week's 25-21 win over then-No. 20 Cincinnati.

As UCF searches for its second of back-to-back wins, Memphis aims to be victorious for the first time since Oct. 1. The Tigers are currently riding a three-game losing streak after losing, 38-28, to Tulane in Week 8. With the bye week in the rearview mirror, Memphis must show signs of life before it's too late.

UCF enters this contest as a clear road favorite on the spread and moneyline. This 3:30 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 58.5, which is about average compared to this week's projected totals.

UCF vs Memphis Prediction & Pick

UCF and Memphis have collided 15 times since 2005, resulting in one side heavily dominating the other. The team in question is the Knights, who have won 14 of those previous meetings. Even then, the Tigers' only win in this rivalry was by one point in a 50-49 shootout two years ago.

I don't expect that trend to change this year. UCF is clearly the better team and its defense will be the difference-maker. The Knights only allow 18.7 points per game (No. 12), whereas the Tigers give up 31.1 PPG (T-No. 94), which has only worsened to an average of 39.3 points over their last three outings.

Though two of Memphis' last three losses only came by two or fewer points, UCF is on a different level now. Even on the road, expect the Knights to make an example of their AAC rivals.

Final Score Prediction: UCF: 37 | Memphis: 24

UCF vs Memphis Best Bet

A 3.5-point spread shouldn't be too much for UCF to cover. Not only are the Knights 6-3 against the spread in their last nine games, but they've also beaten the Tigers by at least four points 12 times in this AAC rivalry.

Don't overcomplicate things: take UCF to cover the spread on the road.

Bet: UCF. -3.5 (+100)
