MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - We are less than two weeks away from the kickoff of the Tigers’ football season and Action New 5 is your home for the several University of Memphis athletics shows.

Not only will Action News 5 produce 50 Tigers games to be broadcast on ESPN+ but it’s also the new home for the weekly Ryan Silverfield, Penny Hardaway and Katrina Merriweather shows.

“It is shaping up to be a great year of Tiger action, and we are pleased that Action News 5 shares our vision of showcasing our programs and our student-athletes in as many ways as possible,” said Memphis Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Laird Veatch. “Fans can look forward to a year of exciting content with this local partnership.”

UofM says the slate of games kicks off Sunday with Tiger women’s soccer and Silverfield TV show debut.

Every Sunday we’re going to take you inside the Memphis Tigers Football Program to tell you stories about your favorite players and more.

Details on Hardaway and Merriweather’s shows are still to come.

You can Silverfield’s show Sunday at 10:30 p.m. right here on Action News 5.

Go Tigers Go!
