The Delta Bowl was a college football bowl game played at Crump Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee. The game was played in 1948 and 1949. After Ole Miss defeated Texas Christian, 13-9 in 1948, bowl officials jinxed themselves by signing the University of Tulsa to appear in the 1949 game prior to the start of the season; however, Tulsa started the year 0-8 and had to be replaced by William and Mary. Locals cared little about watching teams from afar playing in the cold and rainy season and so the game fizzled after two years.
