Will Rogers is back under center after throwing for 4,739 yards and 36 touchdowns as Mike Leach looked to stretch the field. Memphis should be able to go toe-to-toe with Seth Henigan returning after throwing for 3,322 yards as a freshman. This has the makings of a shootout and I like taking the total going over in this one.
