MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC-TV) – Tom III was introduced to Memphis fans at a home football game against UCF on Saturday.

The young tiger replaces Tom II, who died earlier this year after serving as the University of Memphis mascot for more than 20 years.

Tom III, who was born in August, was donated by Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue and Educational Center.

An unexpected pregnancy at the center led its directors to contact the university to offer to donate the cub.
