(AP) – Riley Patterson kicked a 47-yard field goal as time expired to give Memphis a 30-27 win over Houston following the Cougars’ improbable comeback on Saturday. Tune threw a 13-yard score to Marquez Stevenson early in the fourth after a 10-play, 75-yard drive. The game-tying drive ended when Tune threw an 18-yard scoring pass to Bryson Smith with 28 seconds to go. Brady White responded to lead Memphis (7-3, 5-3 American Athletic Conference) on a 5-play, 46-yard drive to set up Patterson. With the win, Memphis finished a second consecutive season undefeated at home for the first time in program history.

Doaks rushed for a career-high 184 yards, Desmond Ridder ran for three scores and threw for another, and No. The Bearcats' read option with Doaks and Ridder kept the Cougars defense off balance all afternoon. “We’re just opening holes for each other.”Ridder capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive with a 10-yard TD run to make it 14-0 in the second quarter. An acrobatic 34-yard catch by Bryson Smith led to Kyle Porter's 3-yard TD run that cut the Cougars' deficit to 14-7. Ridder added a 12-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter.
