Tigers compete in second scrimmage


The Memphis Tigers went through a final scrimmage at the Murphy Athletic Complex Saturday, their second scrimmage of fall camp.

Saturday’s final scrimmage of camp was described by Memphis head coach Justin Fuente as having some give and take.

“As the head coach, you can take it a bunch of different ways,” he said. “At times the offense moved the ball, and at other times they didn’t move the ball. At times the defense played really well, and at times they didn’t. I don’t know what that means yet, except as a whole, we are moving in the right direction but we still have work to do.”

Memphis will not practice Sunday or Monday, as the team prepares for it's return to the classroom. Classes begin at the University of Memphis on Monday.

Memphis will practice next on Tuesday and will cap the week with a mock game set for Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium next Saturday morning. The mock game will put the Tigers through a wide-range of situations and mark the culmination of the preseason for the team. The event will begin at 11 a.m. with gates opening at 10:30.
