Tigers Face Dangerous Foe in Arkansas State 

The Memphis Tigers have won 10 of the last 11 meetings with Arkansas State on the gridiron (though the Indians took last year's game at the Liberty Bowl).

This annual contest has traditionally served as an early-season stepping stone for the U of M, as conference play awaits later in the month.

But that trend may be over. Arkansas State narrowly dropped its season opener at Texas (yes, that's Austin, Texas, home of the 7th-ranked Longhorns), while the U of M lost at home to Ole Miss, a lower-tier SEC school.

Perhaps most intimidating of all are these words from ASU coach Steve Roberts: "Texas didn't beat us [Saturday.] We beat ourselves." Read more on the Tigers’ next opponent.
