Mike Leach’s offense has yet to put up massive numbers in Starkville, but the Bulldogs may be better defensively than expected. Memphis always provides a tough challenge, but this is a big game for Leach to show he’s on the right track with the program. Expect big numbers from QB Will Rogers in this one.
