Headed into Wednesday night's game against Cincinnati, the University of Memphis knew at least three things: they would have their hands full against the Bearcats (5-2); the game would get air time on ESPN2; and a victory would do measures for the national identity of the Tigers (1-5).
Well, two out of three isn't bad, as Memphis rallied late but could not overcome Cincinnati (6-2, 3-1), falling 34-21 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.
Memphis won the toss and elected to defer. On its first drive, Cincinnati faced a 4th and 2 deep in Memphis' territory and decided to try and assert its will. They failed.
