Tigers Reciever Has New "Do" for Rebels

The Tigers will defend home turf Saturday against Ole Miss at the Liberty Bowl..

And they're expecting to go to the air to do it.

With a Bevy of Big and Tall Wide Receivers, it's no secret the U of M plans to air it out against the Rebels..

6'4", 230-pound Maurice Jones is a part of that attack...

A punishing specimen, Jones is also not afraid to take a little off the top under his helmet.

Jones is sporting a new Mohawk hairdo, complete with Memphis on one side, and Tigers on the other..

Several Tigers Basketball players carved creative do's on their domes during last seasons' run to the elite 8...

So, why not try it for football?

"I said I was going to do it for the first week of the season at camp...and everybody asked me to do it for Fan Day, so I did that, and just carry it on to the first game of the season. Maybe i'll carry it throughout the season. We'll see."

Jones, by the way, got his new 'do' at former Tigers Basketball star Antonio Burks' Barber Shop.

  Memphis hosts Mississippi 2:30pm Saturday at the Liberty Bowl.
