MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The American Athletic Conference announced its 2022-23 schedule Wednesday, rounding out the Memphis Tigers’ slate for the upcoming season. Season tickets for the 2022-23 season are available at THIS LINK, with a mobile pass allowing fans to experience a different seating location for each game starting at $99.
 
In American Athletic Conference action, the Tigers play home-and-home series with Houston, Cincinnati, SMU, UCF, Wichita State, Temple, South Florida and Tulane while traveling to Tulsa and hosting East Carolina. A challenging final five games of the regular season features contests at Houston (Feb. 19), at Wichita State (Feb. 23), at FedExForum against Cincinnati (Feb. 26), at SMU (March 2) and at FedExForum against Houston (March 5).
 

The non-conference portion of the schedule features home contests with Texas A&M, Ole Miss and VCU and a total of five games against SEC opponents. Including Seton Hall in the first round of the 2022 ESPN Events Invitational in Orlando, Fla., Memphis is scheduled to play seven teams that finished in the top-66 of the NCAA NET rankings last season and seven games against teams that played in the 2022 NCAA Tournament or National Invitation Tournament.
 
A second-round matchup with Oklahoma in the ESPN Events Invitational would mean Memphis would face eight teams that finished in the top-66 of last year’s NCAA NET rankings and eight teams that played in either the NCAA Tournament or NIT last season.
 
The ESPN Events Invitational field, which runs Nov. 24-27 at State Farm Field House on the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, also includes Nebraska, Florida State, Stanford, Ole Miss and Siena. Additional information can be found at THIS LINK.
 
The 2023 AAC Tournament will be played March 9-12 at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.
