Memphis Tigers Football Schedule
The Memphis Tigers have a long history in football which dates all the way back
to 1912, and in more than a century of playing the sport the program has won 4 conference championships. Last season was a
bit of a struggle for the Tigers during their first year in the American Athletic Conference as they went 1-7 in conference
play and finished with a 3-9 overall record. Some growing pains were to be expected as it was only the Tigers' second year
under head coach Justin Fuente and they had a very young team. In 2014 Memphis will be looking for a big turnaround and they
should have the talent and experience to do exactly that. This season's Tigers are determined to show the other members of
their new conference that they are a team to be feared as they look to make a big move up the conference standings. Life is
never easy in the American Athletic Conference and the Tigers will certainly have their work cut out for them so be sure to
get your tickets from StubHub today to show them your support and help cheer the Tigers on to a big win.
The home opener
for the Tigers takes place on August 30th when the Austin Peay Governors come to town. Home openers at Liberty Bowl Memorial
Stadium are always exciting but this year's should be extra special with raised expectations and the opportunity for the Tigers
to score a big home win at the start of the season. A home game against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders follows on September
20th before the Tigers have a big conference home game against the Houston Cougars on October 11th. A home match up against
the Tulsa Golden Hurricane takes place on Halloween before the Florida Southern Moccasins come to town on November 22nd. The
final home game of the season takes place on November 29th when the Connecticut Huskies come to Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.
There are plenty of opportunities to show the Memphis Tigers your support this season, just pick out the games you can attend
and get ready for a great time at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.
Entering their third season
under head coach Justin Fuente, big things are expected of the Memphis Tigers. All of the offensive and defensive systems
have now been firmly established and the Tigers have begun to adjust to American Athletic Conference play so they should be
able to once again become dominant in their conference. Quarterback Paxton Lynch continued to improve during his sophomore
season in 2013 and will enter the 2014 season ready to lead and with the talent and experience to become one of the top passers
in the conference. Last season the defense was one of the Tigers' strong suits and a strong returning core on that side of
the ball should make the defensive unit even more stout in 2014. It is an exciting time to be a Memphis Tigers football fan
as they look to establish themselves as one of the elite teams in their new conference.
