Marquee matchup

Memphis tailbacks Darrell Henderson and Patrick Taylor Jr. versus the UCLA run defense. The Bruins have allowed three tailbacks to exceed 100 yards rushing in two games, with Texas A&M’s Trayveon Williams logging 203 in the season opener. It’s been a winning formula for UCLA only because a strong secondary and a prolific offense have offset the avalanche of yardage. Henderson (169 yards) and Taylor (131) each hit triple digits in rushing yards against Louisiana-Monroe and hope to keep churning against the Bruins.
