MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Tigers football team moved in to the Associated Press Top 25 poll at #25 following Saturday’s 30-27 upset win over Navy.

Click here to see the full poll.

The last time Memphis was ranked in the AP poll was Nov. 8, 2015. Memphis debuted in that year’s Associated Press top 25 poll with a 37-24 win over Ole Miss. That marked the Tigers’ first appearance in the AP Top 25 since 2004.

The team then ranked in four consecutive polls (Week 8 - No. 18, Week 9 – No. 16, Week 10 - No. 15, and Week 11 – No. 25).

Memphis was knocked out of the national rankings by its next opponent -- suffering a 35-34 loss at Houston. The two American Athletic Conference West Division foes will play this Thursday at 7 p.m. (CT) in Houston in a game that will be nationally-televised by ESPN.

The Tigers started a run of five consecutive games against West Division foes with a 30-27 win over Navy on Saturday.

The Tigers will not play another Saturday game until November, playing Thursday at Houston, the following Friday (Oct. 27) against Tulane and Friday, Nov. 3 at Tulsa.

Tickets for the Tigers’ home game against Tulane are on sale now at this link.
