This game will be the second that will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network following the Miami contest last weekend. For the Bearcats this is a game with a ton of importance now. UC has to get off to a good start in the conference, they have to find some rhythm and some confidence before heading to South Beach to play the Miami Hurricanes. Miami is not who we thought they would be in July, but they are capable of giving the Bearcats a beatdown.
Memphis has been a feisty team so far in 2014. They played UCLA very tough before falling in overtime in Pasadena. Yesterday they gave Ole Miss plenty to handle before fading in the fourth quarter. This is a much better Memphis team than the one the Bearcats labored in beating last October. The defense is not as good as they were a year ago, but they have an offense now. Any team with the slightest offensive pulse is a major concern now.
