Tigers Bowling in Motor City

After a long wait the Tigers know their post season season destination. The Tigers have accepted an invitation to play in the Motor City Bowl in Detroit.  They'll meet MAC champion, Akron. The Tigers are one of a record 6 Conference USA teams playing in bowl games, despite having just 5 tie-ins. The Tigers took an at-large bid to play in the Dec.26th game.

After struggling through an unprecedented number of key injuries including 2 quarterbacks, the Tigers persevered to a 6-5 record. It's the 3rd straight trip to a bowl for the Tigers and it gives fans one last chance to see DeAngelo Williams play.

Tonight at the Senior Banquet, they celebrated the news. Game time is set for 3pm at Ford Field. The Tiger Ticket Office will begin taking ticket orders this Tuesday at 9:00am and NOT BEFORE.
