CAN YOU HEAR THE ROAR?
When the Tigers win, the entire city wins.
It’s loud and it’s electric, really, what happens around town in support of the Memphis Tigers. To say that people are wild about our Tigers is a total understatement. Memphis loves the UofM and the UofM loves Memphis. We are no strangers to March Madness or conference championships.
Over 400 student-athletes compete in 17 different intercollegiate sports. The UofM is a charter member of the American Athletic Conference, and our athletic programs compete at the highest level as an NCAA Division I institution. They’re working hard off the field, too. The UofM athletic department closed the books on the 2015-16 academic year with a number of accomplishments, including a program-wide 3.114 GPA, the highest GPA for the athletic department in program history. Many go on to play for professional teams. It’s the south, so athletics are big. But this is also Memphis, so sports bring us together to be proud, eat some barbeque and have some good times. Then repeat often.
