The two teams have played just three total games as Memphis' week two matchup with UCF was cancelled because of Hurricane Irma.
Here's a look at the key stat matchups between the two teams:
Believe it or not, Memphis is actually a pass-first team. In a week-one game against Louisiana Monroe that was much closer to a blowout than the final 37-29 score indicated, the Tigers passed for less than 100 yards as they controlled the ground game.
Darrell Henderson rushed for 169 yards and 2 touchdowns on just 12 carries and Patrick Taylor Jr. added 131 yards and a score on 15 carries. QB Riley Ferguson even ran one in, a feat he never accomplished last season.
Because of the strong run game, Memphis threw for less than 100 yards for just the second time with Ferguson as the QB, the other coming last year against Cincinnati when he left early with an injury.
UCLA, on the other hand, has practically the opposite stats. With Josh Rosen at the helm, the Bruins have tossed the ball all over the place. Rosen threw for 329 yards and 5 scores last week against Hawaii after a 491-yard, 4-touchdown comeback effort against Texas A&M in the opener.
On the ground UCLA has just 195 yards in two games, led by 16 carries for 63 yards and an score from Bolu Olorunfunmi. No one else on the team has over 50 yards on the ground.
UCLA has allowed just 161.5 yards per game this season, but they've been gashed to the tune of 331.5 yards per game on the ground.
Memphis gave up 279 yards to Louisiana Monroe through the air, but most of it came late.
It's early in the season, so it's hard to place too much stock into stats and stat ranks at this point. But one thing seems clear — we're in for a lot of points when Memphis and UCLA hit the field Saturday.
