Memphis, TN - Tigers to Face Four Bowl Teams ...
The University of Memphis Tiger football team will face four bowl teams from the 1999 season, in addition to several strong Conference USA foes, when the 2000 football season kicks off this fall. The bowl participants include Tennessee and Mississippi State from the SEC and Southern Mississippi and East Carolina from Conference USA.
The Tigers will face Tennessee, Mississippi State, East Carolina, Houston, Cincinnati and Louisiana-Monroe in the friendly confines of Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium and will travel to contests with Army, Southern Mississippi, UAB, Tulane and Arkansas State.
"This is a very competitive schedule", said Tiger head coach Rip Scherer. "We have a chance to open at home and get a couple of games under our belts before we have to play a road game. East Carolina and Houston return to our schedule and it will be nice to have both of them in our stadium".
