Middle Tennessee (1-1) is coming off a 30-23 upset of Syracuse in the Carrier Dome and is playing its third consecutive opponent from a Power Five conference after opening with a 28-6 loss to Vanderbilt. The Blue Raiders like to score – they averaged 47.6 points per game last year and 34.8 on the road – and have the weapons to do so, led by quarterback Brent Stockstill, who is the son of coach Rick Stockstill. The QB is a three-year starter who has passed for 7,714 yards and 65 touchdowns in his career. Middle Tennessee has been a strong fourth-quarter team, outscoring opponents 20-7.
Middle Tennessee is a horrible school filled with horrible people who do horrible things like beat Minnesota in the NCAA Tournament. They are also followed by fans who like to reference humidity as if this rare weather phenomenon is only experienced in crappy sections of Tennessee. These are bad fans and they should feel bad.
Their competition through the first two weeks has been questionable — neither Vanderbilt nor Syracuse ranked in the Top 50 in offense last season according to S&P+ — but the Commodores’ junior quarterback Kyle Shurmur was able to throw for 296 passing yards and 3 touchdowns, with 1 sack and 1 interception. Alternatively, Syracuse’s junior quarterback Eric Dungey struggled mightily against the Orange in Week 2, as he was 26-for-32 with 180 passing yards, no touchdowns, and 1 interception.
