SMU coasts past Memphis 44-13

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS (AP) -

Garrett Gilbert threw for 353 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more scores to lead SMU past Memphis 44-13 Saturday.

The former Texas quarterback scored on a short run after Memphis had pulled within three in the third quarter, and his 10-yard scramble put the Mustangs up 30-13 in the fourth.

Zach Line rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown for SMU (4-4, 3-1 Conference USA). Darius Johnson had 141 receiving yards.

Brandon Hayes had 55 rushing yards and scored the only touchdown for the Tigers (1-7, 1-3).
Trailing 16-13 after a 13-play field goal drive, Memphis sacked Gilbert on SMU's first play of the second half. On the next snap, Johnson turned a short pass from Gilbert into a 70-yard gain, and Gilbert stretched across the goal line on third-and-goal from the 2.
