MTSU Football Looks for a Win in Florida

Oct 12, 2012

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders are on their way to Florida for Saturday’s game against Florida International University at Miami.

The last couple of weeks have been a real roller-coaster ride for MTSU. Two weeks ago the Blue Raiders pummeled Georgia Tech 49 to 28. But this past week the Raiders stumbled against the University of Louisiana at Monroe, losing their homecoming game 31-17.

FIU will be playing their homecoming game, and Coach Rick Stockstill says MT will have to be in top form to win.

“To me it’s by far the best defense that we will have faced this year. Then offensively, like I said, they’ve had their quarterback and a couple of backs out but they get those guys back this week. So they’re whole arsenal of weapons will be available to them.”

Kickoff is set for 5:00 pm Central with the pregame show beginning at 4:30 here on WMOT.

Middle Tennessee will be on the road again next week to take on Mississippi State October 20.
