Which do you prefer? The snap of leaves under your feet on a crispy fall afternoon or the tension in the air as Drew Kyser snaps the ball for what could be the winning run of the game?

We have some good news for you: Starting on Saturday, Sept. 1, you won’t have to choose. That’s right, another exciting year of University of Memphis Tiger football is coming up fast, with season tickets available now and single-game tickets going on sale in August.

First up, Georgia’s Mercer University meets the University of Memphis at the home opener on Sept. 1 at 6 p.m. Kroger stores will be selling $10 discounted tickets for the game in August.

2017: A hard act to follow

Last year, the Memphis Tigers not only took the American Athletic West Division Championship first-place trophy but beat Navy for the first time in the school’s history! Even with an early kickoff against 27-mph winds and a delayed start due to lightning in the fourth quarter, the Tigers defeated SMU for the 2017 conference win.
