  Last season's Memphis defense seemed more about stopping opponents just enough so that an explosive Tiger offense could score more points. On Saturday, the roles were reversed with a much-improved Memphis defense stifling Mississippi, leading the Tigers to a 15-10 victory in the season opener for both teams. "Hats off to our defensive staff. Coach Fuller and the defensive staff was incredible, absolutely incredible," Memphis coach Mike Norvell said. "Kept them off-balance all game long." The Tigers held the Rebels to 173 yards of offense, including minus-1 yards rushing in the first half. But it was a fourth quarter safety by Memphis defensive end Bryce Huff that sealed it.

On first down after Tiger punter Adam Williams pinned the Rebels at their own 2, Huff busted through to tackle Corral as he dropped back to pass in the end zone. That gave Memphis its final 15-10 margin with 6:32 left. The Rebels would never get the ball back after the ensuing free kick and Memphis ran out the clock with a six-plus-minute drive. "That's something I'll remember for a long time," Norvell said of closing out the game. "This football team trains, prepares itself. This team plays a top-notch, physical football game here in Memphis." Patrick Taylor rushed for 128 yards and a touchdown to lead the Memphis offense. Kenneth Gainwell, who has taken over the Tigers all-purpose duties from Tony Pollard, now with the Dallas Cowboys, had 77 yards rushing for the Tigers and six catches for another 41 yards. - AP College Football
