No. 25 UCLA at Memphis

When: 9 a.m. PT Saturday

Where: Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, Memphis, Tenn.

TV/Radio: ABC/AM 1150

Records: UCLA (2-0); Memphis (1-0)

Memphis stats

QB Riley Ferguson: 10-25, 977 yards, 1 INT

RB Darrell Henderson: 12 carries, 169 yards, 2 TDs

RB Patrick Taylor Jr.: 15 carries, 131 yards, 1 TD

DL O’Bryan Goodson: 3 tackles, 2 TFLs, 1 sack

Memphis injury report: OUT: NT Jared Gentry (leg), LB Darian Porter, LB Jackson Dillon (shoulder), WR Sam Craft (knee); SUSPENDED: DL Jonathan Wilson (first half, targeting)

Memphis wins if: Ferguson and WR Anthony Miller rekindle their record-setting connection that was dampened by Hurricane Harvey rains in the season opener. … Henderson and Taylor, who combined for 300 against Louisiana-Monroe, break an already fragile UCLA rushing defense. … An injury-riddled defense gets pressure on UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen and disrupts his red-hot form.

UCLA stats

QB Josh Rosen: 57-84, 820 yards, 9 TDs

TE Caleb Wilson: 18 catches, 239 yards, 1 TD

WR Darren Andrews: 16 catches, 234 yards, 5 TDs

LB Krys Barnes: 12 tackles, 1 TFL

DB Darnay Holmes: 9 tackles, 1 INT, 2 PBU

UCLA injury report: PROBABLE: DT Boss Tagaloa; QUESTIONABLE: RB Soso Jamabo; DOUBTFUL: LB Kenny Young (head), S Jaleel Wadood (head), S Adarius Pickett (knee); SUSPENDED: LB Josh Woods (first half, targeting)

UCLA wins if: The offense is can keep its hot streak going to compensate for a short-handed defense. … The defense’s young linebackers grow up quickly when thrust into starting roles and help the Bruins stop the run. … Darnay Holmes and Nate Meadors lock down Memphis’ star receiver Miller and force Ferguson to find other weapons.

Prediction

UCLA 45, Memphis 41
