December 16, 2008


In the 91 years prior to 2003, the football program at the University of Memphis had only three bowl appearances, the last coming in 1971 when Fred Pancoast led the Missouri Valley Conference-champion Tigers to the Pasadena Bowl. Thirty-two years later, Tommy West and legendary running back DeAngelo Williams, now with the Carolina Panthers led […]
