Fans gather on Tiger lane for final game of regular season

Fans gathered one last time on Tiger Lane.

“I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, and praise God, I own my business and could take off today,” said Dale Franklin, Tiger fan.

And among the sea of blue was a 1986 R.V. that Darryl Franklin and Dennis Martin purchased after a random meeting in 2003 at the tailgating parking lot.

“We struck up a conversation over some shrimp that he offered my wife and we've been friends ever since,” said Daryl Martin, Tiger fan.

That's the type of thing you’ll find on Tiger lane -- it's truly a community.

Tailgating has gotten even bigger as Tiger Football started stacking up the wins.

The Tigers beat the Cincinnati Bearcats 34-24.

Now Memphis will host the AAC championship game.
