This year, Memphis is 6-5, 5-2.

They played Arkansas State (and lost), MTSU (and lost)

and UCF beat them (56-20)

when UCF lost bad to USF (12-64)

and we did well against USF

so

this may be a good game for us if we can get there.

Re: FAU/Troy to play Memphis

yea i am not impressed with memphis, at all

a triple-overtime win over SMU, which is just god-awful… lost to arkansas state and middle tennessee… their only quality dominant performance was over UAB, which is not "quality" whatsoever

i am very confident of the Belt heading into that bowl game… troy and florida atlantic would fair very nicely against memphis

GO OWLS!!

What a bunch of $%#@.

Here we were hoping for a top tier CUSA team or even a SEC team and we get … Memphis, which was already beaten good by the 'Belt this year.

What a poor decision.

Re: FAU/Troy to play Memphis

I would rather play a crap team like memphis then get smoked on national tv by the SEC.

this troy game is going to be very tough. they looked great against MTSU last week.

I don't think a top tier CUSA team is supposed to go to New Orleans Bowl and forget about an SEC team.  I think the tie in is about the 4th seed of CUSA.  Just the way it is right now.

If we are fortunate to beat Troy, I don't care who we play, we don't control that, I just hope the Belt wins to build credibility for additional tie in Bowls for the future.

Re: FAU/Troy to play Memphis

I agree, and you have to start wondering playing such an aggressive OC schedule and many playing a few more that you have a shot at winning could go a long way in establishing playing a bowl game on a more consistent bais every year.

Having a 7-5 record goes a long way, even if you play in the Belt when it come to Bowl games.
