Tigers Football Schedule



Around the Mid-South, a lot of folks bleed blue and gray and Tiger loyalty runs deep. And although Tiger fever is an epidemic around here, the University of Memphis team was not officially named the Tigers until 1939--a full 27 years after its first season.

Interestingly, since 1972, the university has owned a live tiger as their mascot, making it one of the few universities in the nation with a live mascot. Tom attends all Tiger football home games and many other university events, as well. His care is not funded by the university, but rather through fund-raising efforts by the team's booster club. At this writing, the current mascot is Tom III (preceded by Tom II and Tom I, respectively) and he is housed in a private facility south of Memphis.

The Tigers compete in the NCAA's Conference-U.S.A until 2013 when they will instead play in the American Athletic Conference.

If you're a fan of Tiger football, check out the current year's schedule below. Please note the location of the game as both home and away games are listed below. Home games are played at the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium at 335 South Hollywood Street in midtown Memphis.
