Gilbert, Shead carry SMU past Memphis 34-29
SMU 34, MEMPHIS 29

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Garrett Gilbert threw for 321 yards and
two touchdowns, Traylon Shead ran for two more scores and SMU
won its first American Athletic Conference game with a 34-29
victory over Memphis on Saturday afternoon.

Gilbert was 27-43 in the game as the Mustangs (2-4, 1-1 AAC)
went out to a big lead in the first half and held on as Memphis
linebacker Ryan Coleman scored on a pair of fumble recoveries -
one from 15 yards and the other for 19 yards - in the second
half. The Tigers (1-5, 0-3 AAC) had penalties negate two other
fourth-quarter scoring plays.

Gilbert threw touchdown passes of 79 and 8 yards in the game.
Shead ran for 83 yards and both of his touchdowns came on 1-yard
runs.

Memphis quarterback Patrick Lynch completed an 8-yard touchdown
pass to Mose Frazier as time ran out for the final score.

After Coleman's fumble recoveries, the Memphis defense almost
came up with another score as Reggis Ball returned an
interception 94 yards for an apparent touchdown.

But Ball dove into the end zone from the 1-yard line, leading to
an excessive celebration penalty assessed from the 1, giving
Memphis the ball at the Mustang 16.

Brandon Hayes eventually scored on a 1-yard run.

Another touchdown pass from Lynch to Joe Craig for 68 yards was
nullified by a facemask penalty against a Tiger lineman.

SMU's only score after halftime was a 31-yard field goal by
Chase Hover.

But the Mustangs already had built a sizeable advantage.

In the first half, Gilbert guided the Mustangs down the field
and Shead finished a pair of drives with 1-yard runs, helping
SMU to a 31-3 lead at halftime.

Gilbert wasted no time getting the Mustang offense on track.
After an opening pass completion, the SMU quarterback faked a
throw to the right flat and then connected with Keenan Holman
for a 79-yard score on the second play from scrimmage.

Gilbert would add another scoring pass to Collin Lagasse from 8
yards in the closing seconds of the half.

A 31-yard pass from Gilbert to Jeremy Johnson early in the
second quarter set up a 1-yard run for Shead. Later, in the
quarter, Gilbert completed a 16-yard pass to Darius Joseph to
the 1, where Shead again scored.

Hover had a 37-yard field goal for SMU to complete the
first-half scoring.

Memphis, as it has recently, initially moved the ball on
offense, but was unable to reach the end zone. Kicker Jake
Elliott connected from 52 yards for his 11th straight field goal
of the season, but later broke the consecutive streak missing a
39-yarder.

The Tiger offense stalled after its early success, amounting to
only 116 yards in the half. Memphis would end the game with 320
yards, compared to 460 for SMU.

The Memphis defense controlled the SMU runners, allowing only 59
yards on the ground in the first half. But that is not the
Mustangs strong suit. Gilbert was 18 of 25 before the break for
223 yards.

In fact, it was the Memphis defense that would eventually get
the Tigers into the end zone. Shead was running at the Mustang
15 when Coleman stripped the ball and headed the other way
barely reaching the end zone for a touchdown late in the third
quarter.

His other touchdown came when SMU's Bryce Taylor fielded a punt
at his 22 and retreated, where he fumbled and Coleman headed in
for another score.
