Memphis To Honor Gatlinburg In Bowl Game

    by -

    The Memphis football team will honor the victims of the recent Gatlinburg fires in its game against Western Kentucky night with these decals on their helmets:

    The Tigers, who have former Tennessee quarterback Riley Ferguson as their starter, are playing in the Boca Raton Bowl on Tuesday evening.

    Tennessee has already announced that it will wear its Smokey gray uniforms in the the Music City Bowl for its matchup against Nebraska in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 30. Fourteen people lost their lives, many more were injured and millions of dollars of damage were done when wild fires swept through the Gatlinburg area in late November of this year.
