Tigers Rebs Tickets Going Fast/Rebel Turned Tigers Ready for Showdown

University of Memphis Students are doing their part to help fill up the Liberty Bowl for Saturdays' season opener against Ole Miss.

The University announced all Student Guest tickets are sold..pushing the total number expected to around 50-thousand..

The Tigers have one player who's seen the rivalry from both sides..

Defensive Back Dontae Reed started his career as a Walk On at Ole Miss..earned a scholarship and was moved to Linebacker..but, playing time issues caused him to look for another school.

Tommy West called...Reed made the move and sat out last season as a transfer.

  Reed says:

"It's very personal..yes, but, i'm not going to let it take my plans, my role, or responsibilities away, because it can hurt me and the team."

Kickoff for the Tigers and Rebels is 2:30pm Saturday at the Liberty Bowl.
