Auburn University Tigers
The Auburn Tigers finished the 2015 regular season with a record of 6-6, with a 2-5 conference (SEC) record. Auburn has played in 38 bowls in its history, although this will be the first time they will play in the Birmingham Bowl. As one of the largest universities in the state of Alabama, Auburn has a huge fan base in the Birmingham area, so we should be in for an exciting game with fans from both sides cheering their teams on to victory.
University of Memphis Tigers
The Memphis Tigers completed the 2015 regular season with an overall record of 9-3, and a conference record of 5-3. Memphis had a great season, and entered the national spotlight after earning a ranking of #13, which was the highest ranking the school had ever received. With Memphis less than a 4-hour drive from Birmingham, the Tigers expect to have plenty of support from their loyal fanbase.
