Recap: So Florida vs. Memphis

Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Memphis Tigers scored 17 points in the final five minutes to pull away for a 23-10 victory over the South Florida Bulls in an American Athletic Conference duel at Raymond James Stadium.

Brandon Hayes rushed for 78 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries for Memphis (3-6, 1-4 AAC), which earned its first win in league play. Paxton Lynch threw for just 59 yards and was also intercepted once while completing 6-of-13 pass attempts.

Mike White threw for 198 yards and a touchdown on 18-of-33 passing but was also intercepted four times for South Florida (2-7, 2-3). Andre Davis brought in seven passes for 110 yards and a score and Marcus Shaw added 57 yards on 11 carries.

A quiet first half ended with the Tigers leading, 6-0, thanks to a pair of field goals from Jake Elliott. The first was from 19 yards out and the second was a 56-yard effort.

Marvin Kloss finally got South Florida on the scoreboard with a 28-yard field goal early in the third quarter.

The Tigers erupted at the end of the fourth quarter as Brandon Hayes scored on a five-yard touchdown run, Elliott nailed a 34-yard field goal and Bobby McCain returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown.

Davis hauled in a 31-yard touchdown pass from White with less than a minute remaining but it was not nearly enough.
