UAB finally got the Tiger sized monkey off their back last season defeating Memphis in Birmingham after having lost fourteen straight to their long time rival. Jon Rothstein has just announced the series will live on as both schools have agreed to continue it for two more years.

Both UAB and Memphis will be undergoing significant makeovers during the off season as the Blazers will be replacing four starters and the Tigers recently hired former player Penny Hardaway to take the reigns of the program.

No dates have been announced for the future match-ups.
