Tenants hope for Liberty Bowl stadium upgrade with Memphis Tigers' move to Big East
The Commercial Appeal


Quote:

With Wednesday's announcement that the University of Memphis is upgrading its conference affiliation status -- moving from Conference USA to the Big East in 2013 -- will an upgrade at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, follow? The nearly 50-year-old, city-owned facility has been home to Tiger football and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl since the mid-1960s, and the Southern Heritage Classic for more than two decades. Although various renovations through the years have improved the game-day experience for fans and media, more upgrades are needed according to the three major tenants, all of whom are hoping the Big East's invitation to the U of M will be a catalyst for an accelerated facelift.
