The Tigers and Ole Miss will renew their series on the gridiron in 2014, when Memphis travels to Oxford. There will have been four years without a Tiger-Rebel game, the longest such drought since they didn't play from 1943 through 1948. (Qualifier: Memphis didn't field a team from 1943-46, due to World War II.)

What is the Tigers' longest winning streak in the series, and when was it?

Memphis beat Ole Miss three straight times, starting with a 17-13 win in Jackson in 1973. The Tigers won again in 1974 (15-7) at the Liberty Bowl and in 1976 (21-16), also at the Liberty Bowl. (The teams didn't play in ’75.) Having won two of three against the Rebels, Fred Pancoast (1972-74) is the only Memphis coach with a winning record against Ole Miss.

It's been 19 years since a Tiger basketball player has led Memphis in both scoring and assists. Penny Hardaway averaged 22.8 points and 6.4 assists in 1992-93, on his way to first-team All-America status.
Two Tigers actually led the team in scoring and assists . . . three straight seasons. Who were they?

Larry Finch
1970-71: 18.4 points and 2.5 assists
1971-72: 23.9 and 4.2
1972-73: 24.0 and 3.9

1989-90: 16.8 and 5.0
1990-91: 20.8 and 4.6

Among the last 10 Memphis football coaches — dating back to 1958, when Billy Murphy was hired — only one began his Tiger career with a victory.

Name the coach, and the team he beat.

Rey Dempsey opened his Memphis career with a 17-2 home win over Arkansas State on September 1, 1984. This was the first Tiger game, of course, since the plane crash that killed coach Rex Dockery after the 1983 season. The '84 Tigers finished with a record of 5-5-1.

Chris Crawford has led the Tigers in assists in each of his first two seasons at Memphis. Since the stat was first tabulated by the U of M (for the 1968-69 season), five players have led the Tigers in assists all four seasons they played.

Name this quintet.

• Alvin Wright (1974-75 to 1977-78)
Otis Jackson (1978-79 to 1981-82)
• Andre Turner (1982-83 to 1985-86)
• Elliot Perry (1987-88 to 1990-91)
• Chris Garner (1993-94 to 1996-97)
