Instead of the normal bouncing and running entrance from the locker room before the game, Memphis walked slowly out of the tunnel arm-and-arm in rows of five players each.
Bradford, a junior from Nashville, died after a shooting at a residential complex on the Memphis campus about 9:45 p.m. Sunday. He drove a short distance before his car crashed into a tree. Emergency workers answering the wreck call, discovered Bradford was shot. He died later at a Memphis hospital.
Memphis authorities continued to investigate the death Tuesday, and there were no suspects in custody.
Bradford, a 5-foot-11, 300-pounder who transferred from Samford University in Birmingham, was used primarily on the scout team. He had not seen action in a game this season.
Memphis players wore round black stickers with TB on the back of their helmets to recognize their teammate. Fans were given stickers with the lineman's number 93.
