The Paint Bucket Bowl is the name of the rivalry between the Arkansas State Red Wolves and the Memphis Tigers. The name of the rivalry was created when officials from the two schools decided to create a trophy for the winner of the game out of some buckets of paint and some paint brushes. The losing school also designed a particular area on its campus that the winner could smear with paint, in an attempt to eliminate the defacing of each campus and the “kidnapping” of opposing football players during game week. The tradition evolved into the winning school being given a trophy from the other—a paint bucket decorated in the colors of the two schools and inscribed with the game score.[1][2] The two teams have met 58 times on the football field, with Memphis currently holding a 30–23–5 edge in the all time series. 2013 is the last scheduled meeting between the two schools.
