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.
