TTT Answer

The 2012 Tiger football schedule does not include an SEC opponent. This fall will mark the first time since 1948 that Memphis has not faced a team from the country's most powerful league. Since 1990, the Tigers have gone 10-39 against SEC competition.

There were two seasons (since 1990) that Memphis won at least two games against SEC teams. Name the seasons, and the teams the Tigers beat.


• In 1993, the Tigers beat Mississippi State (ranked 23rd in the country) to open the season, 45-35. They shut out Arkansas, 6-0, in late September. And they beat Ole Miss at the Liberty Bowl in November. Sadly, the Tigers went 3-5 against non-SEC competition.

• In 1994, Memphis beat Arkansas, 16-15, and Ole Miss, 17-16.
