Tiger fans board bus for Houston

Ann Ellis and her daughter-in-law Angela left their husbands at home and boarded a Bank of Bartlett charter flight to Houston to cheer on the Memphis Tigers in the Sweet-16.

There were nearly 300 Tiger fans on two different flights who left Memphis International this afternoon.

Many, of course, had their accessories with them.

They had their beads, their pom poms, and their BLUE HAIR.

"It's my first trip to travel with everyone and I'm going to have fun. I'm going to yell and have fun with my daughter-in-law," Ellis said.

The first flight of fans bound for Houston left at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon. Another is set to leave Thursday evening.
