TTT Answer

Few sports are built on historic rivalry like college football. Certain teams would call a 1-11 season successful if the lone victory came against the right opponent. (Two or three programs in the SEC fit this category in their view of Alabama.)

As for the Memphis Tigers, longtime series with Southern Miss and UAB are no more, not since the U of M joined the American Athletic Conference. Among the 12 teams on the Tigers' 2014 schedule, which team has the longest current series with Memphis?

The Tigers will play Middle Tennessee for the sixth straight season this fall. SMU is the only other opponent to appear on the Tigers' last four schedules. (The Tigers will play Ole Miss for the 60th time, but it's their first meeting since 2009.)
