After an already eventful Fall Break of camping at DeSoto State Park and visiting the Memphis Zoo, we capped off our adventures by going to watch the Memphis Tigers upset the #13 Ole Miss Black Bears at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. This was the Tigers’ biggest football victory since they upset the Tennessee Vols (and Payton Manning) 19 years ago. Needless to say, it was a very exciting game on a beautiful day. Will and I went to the game with my Dad, while the other kids stayed at my parents’ house with my mom. It was Will’s 1st ever college football game, although he has been to 2 Tennessee Titans NFL games. Will has also been to several Memphis Tigers basketball games, including the 2008 Final Four while he was in the womb! Here are some pictures from our day at the football game.
