No. 20 Memphis blows out East Carolina

(TSX / STATS) -- MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Before Saturday's game kicked off, Memphis Tigers wideout Anthony Miller ranked in the top five in the nation in receiving touchdowns and receiving yards per game. But when the list of finalists for the Biletnikoff Award recently came out, Miller wasn't on it.

"I was kind of mad to be left off," Miller said after catching three passes for 144 yards and a touchdown in the No. 20 Tigers' 70-13 victory over East Carolina on Saturday afternoon at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. "That was sort of the fuel to my fire."

Miller and fellow senior Riley Ferguson burned the ECU defense on the first play from scrimmage. Ferguson, the American Athletic Conference's leading passer, flicked a short pass to Miller and he turned it into an 89-yard touchdown, giving Memphis a 7-0 lead at the 11:46 mark in the first quarter.
