The defending American Athletic Conference champion Memphis Tigers will be looking to capitalize off of a 12-win season that resulted in a trip to the Goodyear Cotton Bowl. Head Coach Ryan Silverfield led Memphis in the Cotton Bowl and the Tigers were very competitive against Penn State in a 53-39 loss to the Nittany Lions. Silverfield takes over for Mike Norvell who left after the AAC Conference championship game to take the head coaching job at Florida State.
