The long-standing rivalry between the Southern Miss Golden Eagles and the Memphis Tigers dates back to October 26, 1935[1] and is often referred to as the Black and Blue Bowl.

History[edit]

This yearly classic garnered its name from the intense competitive nature of the contest, as well as the competing schools' colors: the black of Southern Miss and the blue of Memphis. From 1995 to 2012, both teams were members of Conference USA in the Eastern Division. The series has been dormant since Memphis accepted an invitation to join the American Athletic Conference.[2]
