MOBILE, Alabama (Ticker) -- Two of the nation's top offenses square off when Bowling Green meets Memphis in the GMAC Bowl.
This will be the first meeting between the two schools and is a matchup of teams who both won bowl games to cap their 2003 seasons.
Memphis defeated North Texas, 27-17, in the New Orleans Bowl last season while Bowling Green won the Motor City Bowl over Northwestern, 28-24.
The Tigers (8-3) won their final three games this campaign after a tough 56-49 loss to Conference USA rival Louisville on November 4.
Memphis has the 10th-rated offense in the country, averaging 464.55 yards, and is led by junior running back DeAngelo Williams, who rushed for 1,828 yards and 21 touchdowns this season.
The nation's third-leading rusher at 166.18 yards per game, Williams is averaging a gaudy 6.2 yards per carry and had nine 100-yard games.
Bowling Green (8-3) entered the season with a quarterback question but Omar Jacobs more than answered it.
The Falcons lost Josh Harris to the NFL after winning 11 games and earning its first trip to the Mid-American Conference title game in 2003. Jacobs stepped in and Bowling Green didn't skip a beat. He won MAC Offensive Player of the Year honors and directed the nation's fourth-ranked offense (501.64).
Jacobs threw an eye-popping 36 touchdowns with only three interceptions this season and finished the year fourth in the country in passing efficiency with a 167.8 rating.
