Remember last Friday when we said UCLA better be looking over its' shoulder for the Memphis Tigers in the Polls??

Well, the Tigers have jumped the Bruins in one... And are getting closer in the other.

The U of M is now number 14 in the latest Associated Press Poll..

That's one spot better than the Bruins, who come in number 15 this week.

The Tigers are now 18-and-3 on the season, have won 12-straight games, and are currently on a 49-game Conference USA winning streak..

That's 3rd longest in the Nation..

Memphis hits the road for 2-games this week..Wednesday at SMU...

They'll stay on the Road and travel to 18th Ranked Gonzaga on Saturday..
