Memphis on Wednesday announced promotions for its six home games for the 2019 football season, including its homecoming game Nov. 2 against SMU.

The Tigers' season opener against Ole Miss has no special promotion, but the nationally televised game is expected to attract one of the season's largest crowds. The 2015 meeting drew 60,241 fans to the Liberty Bowl. It's the first time Memphis and Ole Miss will meet since 2016.

Homecoming will be a month later than last season, when the Tigers hosted it in October.

As of now, there are no plans to release themed T-shirts for each game like last season, where fans were encouraged to wear black against Houston for example.

The remaining promotions for this season are as follows:

Sept. 7: Memphis is offering $10 tickets through Kroger, with a portion of proceeds going to Kroger's Zero Hunger Zero Waste Program.

Sept. 26: The Tigers' Thursday night game against Navy will honor both active military members and veterans.

Oct. 19: Memphis' game against Tulane will be the annual salute to the 901 area code as well as promoting cancer awareness.

Nov. 29: The Tigers' Black Friday showdown against Cincinnati will be Senior Day.
