Kickoff Time Announced for UT Martin Game

Oct. 28, 2013

The American Athletic Conference announced Monday kickoff times for the Nov. 9th league schedule. Memphis' game against UT Martin will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. and will be broadcast online by ESPN3.

The UT Martin game, which caps homecoming activities at the University of Memphis, will wrap up a three-game home stand for the Tigers.

Memphis plays the middle game in the home stand on Wednesday, hosting Cincinnati in a nationally-televised game which will kickoff at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.

Activities surrounding the Cincinnati game begin early. At 2 p.m. Wednesday there will be a ceremony to rededicate the playing surface at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium as Rex Dockery Field. The event will take place at the Gate 3 Towers which are located at the east end of Tiger Lane.

A permanent plaque will be unveiled at that location and the families of the four victims will be present for the ceremony.

On Dec. 12, 1983, Memphis State head football coach Rex Dockery, his offensive coordinator Chris Faros, Tiger freshman defensive back Charles Greenhill and pilot/Highland Hundred member Glenn Jones lost their lives in a plane crash near Lawrenceburg, Tenn.
