OILERS EYE THEIR LIBERTY: '98 SEASON IN MEMPHIS
Published August 13, 1996
Oilers Exec VP Mike McClure said it's "all but certain" the team will play its first season of Tennessee home games in Memphis instead of Nashville, as they are "fairly confident" about playing in the Liberty Bowl. Work will not begin on a stadium in Nashville until Congress decides against legislation restricting franchise relocations. Congress is not expected to end its session until October, "making it unlikely" the stadium can be finished in time for the Oilers season opener in '98 (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 8/13).
