Receiver Tannar Rehrer caught 11 passes for 89 yards in today's game. This is the third-straight game that Rehrer has caught at least five passes; and the fourth time this season he has done so. The 11 receptions are a career best and rank tied for third in school history. Duke Calhoun was the last Memphis player to record 11 or more receptions with 11 against Southern Miss in 2009. The 89 yards receiving is also a career best for Rehrer.

Andy Summerlin came into the game with :30 remaining in the third quarter. It was the first time that Summerlin has come in at quarterback since he left the season opener against Mississippi State with an injury.

Senior Frank Trotter was credited with two sacks, which is a career-best for the defensive lineman. Trotter came into the game with just one career sack. He finished with three tackles for loss combining for nine yards.

Paulo Henriques put the first points on the board for the Tigers when he booted a 50-yard field goal with :30 remaining in the first quarter to close the deficit to 7-3. It was a career-long for Henriques as his previous long was 47 against Southern Miss last season. Henriques has attempted three total kicks of 50 or more yards this season, with this being his first make from that distance.
