The Memphis Tigers scored two touchdowns in the final five minutes to upset heavily favored Southern Miss in Hattiesburg Saturday, 29-26.

Unable to rush the ball throughout the game (the Tigers had 30 yards total on the ground), Memphis rode the arm of QB Martin Hankins for 400 yards and four touchdowns, two in the final five minutes. Hankins threw to 10 different Tiger receivers.

The much-maligned Memphis defense also played well, holding Southern Miss to only 306 total yards.

The Tigers, now 5-5 on the year, can become bowl-eligible by winning one of their remaining two games. For complete stats and recap, check out SI.com.
