Since the Tigers upset Tennessee in 1996 (surely you remember), the SEC has had its way with Memphis, its teams winning 26 of 28 games. But the talent disparity has not always been so dramatic. When was the last time the Tigers beat three SEC teams . . . in the same season? And who were the teams?

In 1993, the Tigers opened their season with a 45-35 upset of 23rd-ranked Mississippi State in Starkville. They beat Arkansas, 6-0, on the road and handled Ole Miss, 19-3, at the Liberty Bowl. Unfortunately, coach Chuck Stobart's team went 3-5 against teams outside the SEC (with three losses by a total of nine points) and did not receive a bowl bid.
