  Another Memphis football player entered the transfer portal and it's one with a familiar last name. Freshman running back Kory Gainwell, the younger brother of Kenneth Gainwell, announced Thursday on Twitter that he was transferring. Gainwell was a late addition to the Tigers' 2020 recruiting class after he committed in January. He did not appear in any games this season with the Tigers given the depth they had at running back. Kory Gainwell is the 11th Memphis player to opt out, transfer or take a personal leave of absence since preseason camp in August. Kenneth Gainwell opted out the week before the team's season opener, citing three family members who died from COVID-19. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  Brady McBride threw for five touchdowns, and Calvin Hill's six-yard run with 34 seconds left sent Texas State past Arkansas State 47-45 on Saturday. McBride threw for 443 yards, and Logan Bonner and Layne Hatcher combined to throw for 462 yards and four touchdowns for the Red Wolves in a game that saw a total of six lead changes. McBride threw a 14-yard scoring pass to Trevis Graham Jr. to put Texas State (2-9, 2-5 Sun Belt Conference) ahead 24-10 with 9:56 left before halftime.

Arkansas State (3-6, 1-5) rallied with four touchdowns - a pair before halftime - and led 38-27 with 13:50 left in the game. But McBride led the Texas State comeback, throwing a 5-yard scoring pass to Marcell Barbee a little more than two minutes later. He connected with Graham again, this time on a 15-yard scoring pass, and the Bobcats led 41-38. Arkansas State then used a 12-play, 65-yard drive that took more than five minutes that ended with Jamal Jones scoring from a yard out for the Red Wolves' last lead of the game. Jeremiah Haydel helped give Texas State a shorter field to work with returning the ensuing kickoff 41 yards to the Texas State 43-yard line. - AP College Football

  11/21/20 - Peter ParrishSo/2023, Memphis, 6-1, 190 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Memphis coach Ryan Silverfield defended how he and school administrators vetted sophomore quarterback Peter Parrish, who was named in a report accusing him of raping a woman while at LSU last season. USA Today reported Monday that Parrish, who transferred to Memphis in August, was suspended by LSU for a year after he was accused. The story added Parrish denied the allegations through his attorney and sued LSU alleging unfair treatment. He has also not been charged with any crime. He withdrew the lawsuit in September after a judge "declined to temporarily lift his suspension."

"We're confident in our process, very thorough in the way we vet these young men," Silverfield said Monday during his weekly press conference. "Just like with any other student-athlete, we don't go into details about what that process looks like for each individual, and I think the reality is that's a school-wide policy is as well." The report focused on how LSU mishandled sexual misconduct complaints against several students, including former running back Derrius Guice. In August, USA Today reported that two women accused Guice of raping them in 2016. Parrish, a former four-star recruit, was named as an example of LSU disciplining an athlete accused of misconduct. His suspension was reported in March as a violation of team rules. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  Brady White became Memphis' all-time passing touchdown leader, Calvin Austin III broke open the game with a 64-yard punt return and the Tigers defeated Stephen F. Austin 56-14 on Saturday. White's short pass to Tahj Washington turned into a 48-yard touchdown and gave White 82 career TD passes, breaking a tie with Danny Wimprine (2001-2004). White threw for 269 yards with one interception. Austin's punt return extended Memphis' lead to 35-14 lead late in the third quarter. Austin had 117 return yards to go along with 173 yards receiving for Memphis (5-2), which has won 14 straight home games. Kylan Watkins rushed for 100 yards. The Lumberjacks (6-4) scored on Trae Self's 7-yard pass to Xavier Gipson in the final minute of the half to get within 20-14. The Lumberjacks were outgained 574-224 with Self being intercepted twice. Their other touchdown came on Brevin Randle's 30-yard interception return. This was Stephen F. Austin's finale of a 10-game fall schedule. There is a possibility of playing one spring game for the FCS team. - Memphis/AP College Football

  11/21/20 - Wardalis DucksworthrJr/2022, Memphis, 6-4, 248 (DS#52 DE) + More +

  The story behind Wardalis Ducksworth's name starts with his great grandfather Wardelle. The Memphis defensive lineman heard the stories growing up about how hard Wardelle worked to raise his family in Mississippi. "He was a big dude. He hauled pulpwood," Ducksworth said. It was a family tradition along with inheriting names. Ducksworth's younger brother is named Fondarious and has an uncle named Cardelle. At Mize High School, classmates couldn't pronounce Wardalis (War-day-liss) so he was called "Duck," a nickname that's carried over with Memphis defensive coordinator Mike MacIntyre.

Now the 6-foot-4, 246-pound junior is making a bigger name getting to the quarterback. Ducksworth hasn't started a game this season for the Tigers (4-2), but he shares the team lead with four sacks along with O'Bryan Goodson and Joseph Dorceus. Ducksworth, who played three games last season before redshirting, also has a sack in three consecutive games, all coming on third down. MacIntyre has used Ducksworth on first and second down but with his length and athleticism, he's been an asset on third-down packages "He's kind of slippery, if that makes sense," MacIntyre said. "He's able to get to his hands on the guys and his length on the guards has really helped him. He's done an excellent job of running our games correctly." - Memphis Commercial Appeal

White completed 30 of 50 passes for 437 yards and four touchdowns as the Tigers overcame a 33-20 deficit in the final four minutes. His 10-yard TD pass with 3:19 left brought Memphis within striking distance and he provided the game-winning touchdown pass with 1:03 left, giving him a program record 24 career wins as a starter. - American Athletic Conference Football

  Dykes finished with seven catches for 142 yards and two touchdowns. Six of his catches came on third down as he was White's security blanket. Dykes had just three catches for nine yards in his last two games. It was a good reminder why the senior tight end has been so effective at the beginning of the season. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  Brady White was 10-for-12 passing on the final two scoring drives to bring Memphis back. The first ended with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Sean Dykes and the second culminated with Calvin Austin catching a 9-yard go-ahead touchdown with 1:03 left. It was almost deja vu to White connecting with Austin for the final touchdown when the Tigers beat UCF on Oct. 17. White won his 24th game at Memphis, setting a new program record for quarterback wins, and his four touchdown passes now have him at 81 in his career, which ties Danny Wimprine's school record. Austin, with 102 receiving yards, tied Anthony Miller's school record for consecutive 100-yard games with four. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  Brady White threw a pair of late touchdown passes to lift Memphis to a 34-33 win over South Florida on Saturday. After Spencer Schrader kicked his fourth field goal of the game with about 4 1/2 minutes left to extend the Bulls' lead to 33-20, White threw a 10-yard TD pass to Sean Dykes and then a 9-yard score to Calvin Austin III with just over a minute remaining to go ahead before the Bulls turned the ball over on downs. The final Memphis drives were both over 70 yards and took the Tigers (4-2, 3-2 American Athletic) a little over 2 1/2 minutes combined to complete. White was 30 of 50 for 437 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. He has 81 career TD passes, tying Danny Wimprine (2001-04) for the Memphis record.

Dykes had 147 yards receiving and two scores and Austin 102 yards and two TDs. Austin has over 100 receiving yards in four straight games, tying a school record. USF scored 24 points in the second quarter in taking a 27-13 halftime lead with the teams combining for three touchdowns in just over 1 1/2 minutes at one point. White threw a 5-yard TD pass to Dykes in the third quarter before Shrader kicked his third and fourth field goals to set up the dramatic drives by Memphis. Noah Johnson threw for 217 yards and two touchdowns for USF (1-6, 0-5), which lost its sixth straight game. Daquan Evans had a 51-yard pick-six. - AP College Football

  11/07/20 - Markevion QuinnrJr/2022, Memphis, 6-2, 195 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Memphis football defensive back Carlito Gonzalez and quarterback Markevion Quinn, both juniors, are no longer with the team, coach Ryan Silverfield said Tuesday. According to the Shelby County Criminal Justice System Portal, Gonzalez was arrested Oct. 17 and charged with aggravated stalking, a felony, and two related misdemeanors. The Memphis athletic department said in a follow-up statement that Gonzalez "has not been a part of the Memphis program since before the season started. He has not been part of the program even before our first game."

Gonzalez, who transferred from Auburn in 2017, played 11 games for the Tigers last season, including the Cotton Bowl loss to Penn State. In three seasons, he had 25 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble in 21 games. Quinn, the Tigers' third-string quarterback, has not said publicly if he's opted out of the season and Silverfield did not elaborate further. Quinn wasn't on the roster ahead of the team's game at Cincinnati last week. He transferred to Memphis in June 2018 following a season at Pearl River Community College (Miss.) and after redshirting due to an ACL injury, he played in two games last season. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  In two seasons as a starter and two games this season, Damonte Coxie left a legacy as one of the best receivers in Memphis history. Now he's headed to the next stage of his career. Coxie made it official on Twitter Monday that he's opting out of this season and declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft. He's the sixth Memphis player to either opt out or take a leave of absence this season. Coxie did not play in the Tigers' win against UCF Saturday and coach Ryan Silverfield said postgame that he was no longer with the team. Silverfield added Monday that Coxie told the staff he was leaving during the middle of the week and it was unexpected. Memphis had 703 total yards of offense in its win over UCF, fifth most in school history. The Tigers will turn to receivers Calvin Austin III, Javon Ivory and Tahj Washington as Brady White's leading options along with tight end Sean Dykes. Ivory and Washington are redshirt freshmen. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  Memphis' 50-49 win over UCF Saturday added another thrilling chapter in one of the AAC's best rivalries. Not only did Memphis end a 13-game losing streak to UCF, it was one of the most prolific games in AAC history. According to ESPN Stats and Info, it was the second game over the last 20 seasons where both quarterbacks had at least 450 passing yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. Memphis was 6-for-16 on 3rd-down conversions but a perfect 5-for-5 on 4th-down conversions. Memphis scored touchdowns on all six red-zone opportunities while UCF was 4-for-6. Both teams combined for 1,501 yards, an AAC single-game record. ESPN also reported its the second-most combined yards in a game in the past five seasons since Oklahoma-Texas Tech combined for 1,708 in a 2016 game that featured Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes. - Memphis Commercial Appeal
