Memphis picked up its third win of the 2021 season within the route of Mississippi State Saturday ensuing from an obvious misstep by the officiating crew.

The Tigers have been up 21-17 with barely underneath 6 minutes to play inside the game when the Bulldogs have been punting the ball away. The ball sailed close to the 5-yard line and bounced as soon as extra to the 10-yard line. The punt seemed to be downed by Mississippi State. Even the referee was about to name the play lifeless and let Memphis arrange retailer.

Second-year Memphis coach Ryan Silverfield, who led Memphis to an 8-3 file and a Montgomery Bowl win remaining season, acquired a Gatorade bathtub from his avid players after the win.
