College Cappers: Picking Winners Week 13

I don't enjoy going against a team for a second consecutive week after losing the week prior. But I don't see how USF can keep up against Memphis. Yes, their defense has been decent to good lately, allowing 20 or fewer points in their last three games against ECU, Temple and Cincinnati. But Memphis is an entirely different animal. The 9-1 Tigers have scored at least 42 in four straight and seven times overall. The Bulls are incredibly offensively challenged, scoring just 27 points in their last three losses.
