Pollard's kickoff return for TD helps Memphis beat SIU 44-31

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Riley Ferguson threw two touchdown passes, Tony Pollard returned a kickoff 100 yards into the end zone, and Memphis continued to roll with a 44-31 victory over Southern Illinois on Saturday night.

The Tigers improve to 3-0 after upsetting then-No. 25 UCLA at home 48-45 on Sept. 16.

Ferguson's pair of short-yardage TDs came in the first half, but Southern Illinois had a 21-17 halftime lead. Ferguson threw a 55-yard pass to John Williams and Darrell Henderson scored on a 14-yard run on the next play about a minute into the third quarter.
