MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Memphis Tigers Football Team rises to 18th in the latest College Football Poll.

The Tigers get back to work Tuesday after an open date and believe me, this would’ve been a day better spent curled up by the heater, if you had a choice, that is 21 degrees on the practice field Tuesday morning.

The players, like Center Dustin Woodard, say you can’t worry about that, when you’ve got more work to do this season.

“Being from Arizona, we don’t get that kind of weather. So, it was kind of interesting," said Woodard. "It was a lot of fun, a little different and, uh, it’s a new experience.”

The 18th ranked Tigers play at Houston Saturday. Kickoff is 2:30 p.m. on ESPN 2.
