MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -

Justin Fuente has his hands full enough in his second season of rebuilding at Memphis that he's focused only on his Tigers, even in their first year as members of the American Athletic Conference.

Fuente says they know they face an incredible challenge trying to build a program while stepping up in competition. He says they are going in with eyes wide open and look forward to the challenges ahead.

Memphis has been trying to move to a better conference for years and are finally in a league that automatically qualifies for the Bowl Championship Series, even if for only one year.

But the Tigers still are trying to dig out from the Larry Porter years. Fuente led the Tigers to a 4-8 record that was Memphis' best since 2008.
