2015 Birmingham Bowl (December)Fact Sheet: Auburn vs. Memphis.

Bowl season reaches a threshold with the 2015 Birmingham Bowl. It's the last non-New Year's Six bowl that involves a Group of Five conference school, as Memphis (The American) goes up against Auburn (SEC).

Power Five schools are 4-1 against G5 schools this bowl season. Memphis defeated Kansas and Ole Miss during the 2015 season, so it's not a given that the Auburn Tigers will be able to roll over The American Tigers.
