Memphis adds Troy, four FCS teams to future schedules

By Kevin Kelley -

The Memphis Tigers have scheduled a home-and-home football series with Troy plus added four FCS teams to their future schedules, Memphis’ official athletics website indicates.

Memphis and the Troy Trojans will play a home-and-home football series in 2024 and 2025. The two schools will meet at Liberty Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee on Sept. 7, 2024 and then at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Troy, Alabama on Sept. 13, 2025.

Memphis and Troy have met five times on the gridiron in consecutive seasons from 1937 to 1941. Troy won the first meeting, but Memphis took the next four games and leads the series 4-1.

The Memphis Tigers have also added four FCS opponents to their future football schedules, which tentatively completes their non-conference schedule through the 2022 season. Memphis will host Southern on Sept. 7, 2019, UT Martin on Sept. 19, 2020, Northern Colorado on Sept. 4, 2021, and North Alabama on Oct. 1, 2022.

The Tigers are 2-1 against UT Martin and have never faced Southern, Northern Colorado, and North Alabama. North Alabama has moved up from Division II to the Football Championship Subdivision and will join the Big South Conference in 2019.

Memphis-Georgia State game set

Memphis and Georgia State were supposed to play a home-and-home series in 2017 and 2018, but the 2017 game in Atlanta was postponed.

According to Memphis’ website, the Tigers will now travel to play the Panthers on Sept. 6, 2025.

Memphis-UTSA series changed

Memphis and UTSA are scheduled to play a home-and-home series in 2020 and 2021. However, Memphis’ website indicates the sites have flipped seasons.

The two schools will now meet in San Antonio on Sept. 26, 2020 and in Memphis on Sept. 25, 2021.

Bowen has totally and completely coitus-ed up the Tigers schedule. No way in hell should Tigers be giving one for one home and home with half these teams. Bowen cancels game against out oldest rivals or rivalry games and replaces them with UTSA and Georgia St.

Could somebody please explain to me why the Tigers want to schedule FCS opponents? Let’s go on the road to Ohio State or LSU and get paid. Playing FCS schools and Georgia State isn’t going to help with recruiting.
