seasons since then. The team started out as a member of the Mississippi Valley Conference before moving on to play in SIAA
and eventually the Missouri Valley Conference. In 1995 the team joined Conference USA, where they would remain until 2014
when they became a part of the new American Athletic Conference. The Tigers have won four conference championships over the
course of the program's history, and have made it to six bowl games. The Tigers are looking to add to their illustrious history
with another season of great football played out on the field.
