Among the last 14 coaches at the University of Memphis (dating back to 1924), only one earned a victory in his debut. Who was the coach and what team did the Tigers beat?

Coach Rey Dempsey's Tigers beat Arkansas State at the Liberty Bowl on September 1, 1984. (Dempsey started his two-year career at the U of M with a record of 5-1-1, only to finish 2-11-2.)

Each of the last two Tiger coaches (Rip Scherer and Tommy West) began his Memphis tenure with a loss at Mississippi State.
