Set your alarms, get all of your Memphis Tigers gear laid out, and make sure you have brushed up on the fight song because Tiger football is back! With the big UCLA game right around the corner, we here at Tiger Bookstore want to make sure you have all the tips and tools to be GAME DAY READY as our 1-0 Memphis Tigers set to take on the UCLA Bruins this Saturday!
First, make sure you get there early! With so much stuff going on down on Tiger Lane, you don’t want to miss any of it.
Expect plenty of food, music, and fun activities to get involved in as soon as you enter Tiger Lane. A few tailgating essentials you will definitely need are tailgate chairs, koozies, and a Memphis Tigers cornhole toss game. A pep rally with Pouncer and the infamous University of Memphis Spirit Squads are sure to get all Memphis fans hyped up. Don’t forget about Tiger Walk either! This Saturday the guys arrive at 8:30 am. This is your chance to show your Tigers your support as they make their way into the Liberty Bowl. Tiger Bookstore will even be set up on Tiger Lane to provide you with the gear and accessories you need to be prepared for the game.
Speaking of gear and accessories, don’t forget to be super spirited for the game!
Bring out your best Memphis blue and wear it with pride on game day with your fellow Memphis supporters on Tiger Lane. If you are looking to take it a step further, let us assist you! We have tiger ears and tiger tails, spirit beads, pom-pons, and Memphis Tigers football apparel to make sure you are striped up and ready! Also note, there is a new Liberty Bowl clear stadium bag policy. But, no worries, we still have you covered! With a variety of options of stadium approved bags, you will be able to carry your items into the Liberty Bowl without any hassle.
We’ll have all this Memphis Tigers gear and more at our pop-up shops before the game on Tiger Lane and during the game inside of the stadium at gates 2, 3, and 4. We’ll also have kiosks around the outside of the Liberty Bowl with stadium approved clear bags.
Don’t forget to pick up one of the $5 game day tees! Every game Tiger Bookstore, in conjunction with the Memphis Tigers athletic department, sells game day tees for $5 up until game day or while supplies last. They are available in store only, limit 4 per person, add $2.50 for sizes 2x-5x. We will have some available on game day for $10.
Lastly, make sure you’re brushed up on all your Memphis Tigers rituals before the game.
The student tailgate will definitely play and have the tiger hop going, so show your moves and don’t be shy. DON’T forget the lyrics to the University of Memphis Tigers fight song! Although they will briefly feed you the lyrics on the jumbo tron, be sure to at least have the “Go Tigers Go” part down for every time our team scores. And lastly, make sure you are watching out for all of the fun that happens on game day! You never know when you might end up on the big screen in front of the thousands of Tiger fans. Practice your best air guitar, hit the Quan moves, or chicken dance, and if you don’t know what I mean, you will surely soon find out!
