The Tigers are coming off a gritty season where they almost did not make the AAC title game last season. They were close to winning it all but blew a huge lead to the UCF Knights for the AAC Title.
Memphis will return 16 starters from last year’s team, including star quarterback Brady White.
According to the poll the Tigers received 15 first place votes in the West division. UCF received 19 of those voted and were voted to win the conference title.
The poll for the AAC West had Houston at second, Tulane in third, SMU at fourth, Navy at fifth, and Tulsa in last place.
This is the third straight year that Memphis has been picked as the favorite to win the AAC West.
