Kicking to Tony Pollard defies logic.
Houston learned the lesson many others have at this point: Don’t kick the ball off to Memphis sophomore Tony Pollard.
On Thursday, he had a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that cut Houston’s lead to 24-14 in the third quarter. It was Pollard’s third kickoff return for a touchdown this season, and fifth for his career.
When will teams figure out Memphis likely has the nation’s most dangerous return man?
“There was some great blocks on that, but that was just a phenomenal return,” Norvell said. "Tony ran through tackles. He willed himself into that end zone and that’s a play I’ll remember the rest of my life. I promise you.”
