Memphis is ablaze with golden shades of yellow, orange and red during the fall months. But, as soon as the autumn air turns crisp, locals don their favorite color – Tiger blue.

It’s very easy to recognize these diehard University of Memphis Tiger fans. They fill Liberty Bowl Stadium with a sea of blue jerseys, hoodies, poms, and of course, giant #1 foam hands come game day.

The Tigers open their season at home on September 1 as they take on regional rival Mississippi State Bulldogs. The U of M players are sure to have their hands full in Conference USA with key games against East Carolina, UCF and Marshall.

Now, if you love the college football experience, make sure you get there early to join in the tailgate parties at Tiger Lanes. 550 reserved parking spaces welcome you to the ultimate Tiger football pregame party. The smell of smoky brats in the air will lead you to the grassy spaces available for grilling and to make things completely convenient, there are electrical outlets. Don’t miss any of the action – the season runs September – November.

Come play around in Memphis. But, be forewarned - Tiger fever is contagious.
