Mathews' TD pass guides Memphis past Rice 14-10
MEMPHIS 14, RICE 10
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The first completed pass of Eric Mathews'
career proved the game-winner Saturday night as Memphis slid by
Rice 14-10 in Conference USA action.
The win was the first for rookie coach Justin Fuente.
Mathews' strike - an 11-yarder to Alan Cross - put the Tigers
(1-4, 1-0) ahead for the first time in the game. Mathews, a
transfer from Blinn College in Texas, alternated with Jacob
Karam under center, and was 1-of-2 passing in the game.
Mathews' score was preceded by a 5-yard touchdown pass from
Karam to Kelwone Malone.
Rice (1-5, 0-3) led 10-0 at halftime. Phillip Gaines recovered a
fumble on Memphis' first offensive play and returned it 12 yards
for an Owl touchdown. Then Chris Boswell's 36-yard field goal
extended the lead.
Playing through heavy rain for much of the game, neither team
had more than 245 yards total offense, with Memphis amassing
just 81 passing yards.
