“What you saw on the field today is what we have been seeing at practice for almost two years, and it carried over on to the field tonight,” said Head Coach Scott Frost in the game’s aftermath.

McKenzie and company draw the Memphis defense in week two, a defense that surrendered 279 yards and two touchdowns in their opening game against Louisiana-Monroe.
